Dave Agans is a Senior Software Engineer for Dell EMC. He has designed and debugged numerous electronic and software systems in his 42-year engineering career. While an undergrad at MIT, he developed one of the first home TV games, and holds several related patents.
Since MIT he has designed consumer VLSI, handheld PCs, truck fleet terminals, industrial controls, hotel management systems, videoconferencing systems, high-voltage power supply controls, video-on-demand servers, and data storage arrays. He participated in everything from market analysis to architecture and design, implementation, and (of course) debugging. It was throughout this career that the rules described in Debugging (and posted on many cubicle walls) were created and honed. (You can download a full-color poster of the rules at the debuggingrules.com website.)
Dave recently expanded his humorous take on serious subjects in the novel The Urban Legion, a conspiracy thriller spoof.
