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...

Good job Carl - As I read it I felt like I was pair programming with an expert on the subject.

comment What non-programming books should a programmer read to help develop programming/thinking skills?
Don't waste time reading this book. Skim it or find a summary it's horribly bloated & repeats the same (self evident) point several times in slightly different ways. Probably ideal for teaching time management to the hard-of-thinking
