Meet the Author

John Robbins is a co-founder of Wintellect, a .NET and Windows consulting and education firm. Wintellect's mission is to help companies ship better software faster using any Microsoft platform. He concentrates on the emergency debugging and consulting aspects of the business. John also teaches other developers how to better debug so they can solve their development problems faster with his course "Debugging Applications." John has worked on debugging or tuning a wide range of applications from companies such as eBay, Microsoft, and AutoDesk, as well as many corporate development shops. In addition to writing both editions of Debugging Applications, John is a contributing editor to MSDN Magazine where he writes the popular Bugslayer column. Before founding Wintellect, John was one of the first engineers at NuMega Technologies (now Compuware Corporation) where he was a key player in designing, developing and managing many of the most-used and award-winning developer tools in the C/C++, Microsoft Visual Basic, and Java marketplace. Prior to stumbling into software development in his late 20s, John was a paratrooper and Green Beret in the United States Army. Since he no longer gets the same adrenaline high that he used to jumping out of airplanes in the middle of the night onto an unlit, postage-stamp-size drop zone with a full combat load, he rides motorcycles at high rates of speed--much to his wife's chagrin.
