Rubber Ducking?

It's been a while since I've made a blog post, and I don't have anything major to post about right now, so I figured I'd toss up something light and interesting. Apparently there is a development / debugging technique known as Rubber Ducking. The idea that we as developers should keep a rubber duck by our desks at all times to help us get through debugging strange bugs and ironing out the kinks in our systems. What's funny is that I am of the opinion that this might actually be a good practice... rubber duckies for everyone!


  1. The struggle between wanting to do this and appearing sane at work is going strong right now.

  2. Somebody should provide a public service, to make rubber ducks freely available to programmers. Thereby, promoting a quality debugging experience for all.
