comment Is experience in business analysis useful when moving into a programming career?
Yes... But where I am Business Analysts get a better rate than Programmers so why would you want to?

comment How to improve my trade
I wrote business systems for about 15 years before moving into management and I found having the basic accounting vocabulary to be a very fundamental key to being able to have a dialog with business. Maybe your experience is different. If you want a superficial understanding by all means use Google, if you want to make a career of writing business systems you need to study business as well as computing.

comment How to improve my trade
Very extreme for an embedded systems developer; he didn't say he was though and was asking the question. If you're studying for a degree you can often choose a few units and I'm suggesting he does that - pick a couple of business units especially an accounting one so he gets a feel for business. It also helps if you plan to do contracting or start your own company...

comment What's the best way to prepare your design & code for those “unknown unknown” bugs from day one?
Then you add a test to reproduce the defect. Fix the defect & you will always be testing for that error every time you run your test suite...
