Debugging for High-altitude Balloon Enthusiasts (and others!)

If a person who debugs code is a debugger then the person who wrote the bugs must be a... 

I gave a talk at the UKHAS 2013 Conference in September on debugging for high-altitude balloon enthusiasts. It applies more generally than that and may be interesting to others (especially if you are relatively inexperienced at programming and debugging).

The talk covers the basics of debugging without any specific programming language and is intended to be humorous but also useful. The folks at UKHAS were super organized and recorded the talks and synchronized the slides. You can listen to me give this talk by going to the BATC File Archive and then select HAB2013: my talk is HAB2013 03 Debugging.

If you care less about debugging and more about other high-altitude balloon stuff then check out my talk from last year, called HAB Software Woes, and my GAGA-1 high altitude balloon flight. Here's a shot of the moon taken by GAGA-1:
