Rubber duck debugging

In software engineering, rubber duck debugging is a method of debugging code. The name is a reference to a story in the book The Pragmatic Programmer in which a programmer would carry around a rubber duck and debug their code by forcing themselves to explain it, line-by-line, to the duck.

Although, I can’t really imagine that implementing this en masse in my current office landscape will gain much in the effect of not interrupting your colleagues… I imagine sales will step in and stop it before any larger customer can see us… 😀
