Many people have asked over the years if I had a collection of all the tips I listed at the end of my Bugslayer column. Amazingly, I didn’t, but Sairama Jamalapuram took the time to extract them off of the MSDN Magazine site so they’d all be in one place. We’ve hosted them at https://training.atmosera.com/resources/bugslayer/ and I’ll keep them up to date with those I add for the column.
If you have a good tip, send it over to me and you too can play the “find my name on the MSDN Library game.” 🙂
