Many of you have probably heard of the rubber duck debugging theory. If not, let me jump right in:
It’s a reference to a story in The Pragmatic Programmer, in which a programmer learned to help debug code by forcing himself to explain it, line-by-line, simply and clearly to a rubber duck. The idea is that if you get stuck on something, try explaining the problem to someone or something (like Chuck!) that has no experience with the problem. More often than not, you end up solving your own problem in the process of explaining it. Genius, right? Of course, you are.
Keep him on your desk and turn to him the exact time you’re faced with a challenge. He’s also a great conversation starter – after all, not everyone has a trusted rubber duck on their desk.
