Digital Woes book review

All software has bugs. Buggy software will fail. Failing software can kill.

So what do we do? We can test the software exhaustively at great expense, or not, or take some middle path.

Lauren Wiener explains the issues, the dilemmas, and the options in this mostly clear and sometimes humorous look at the business of writing software.

Non-programmers will get a better idea of programming, and programmers will get some perspective on their craft. Everyone will have a bit clearer view of software’s role in our lives, and a timely warning of its limits.
