  • Debugging with GDB

    I still struggle with GDB but my excuse is that I seldom use it.

    When I was studying reverse engineering though, I came across a really cool kit (which I've yet to find an alternative for lldb, which would be nice given: rust)

    I'd recommend checking it out, if for no other reason than it makes a lot of things really obvious (like watching what value lives in which register).


    LLDB's closest alternative to this is called Venom, but it's not the same at all. https://github.com/ovh/venom

  • Do you write integration tests in go?

    We incorporated [Venom](https://github.com/ovh/venom) into our workflow. It's great for initiating and managing a suite of yaml based tests. It didn't work out of the box for us due to the heavily asynchronous nature of our system, but after a few additions, it has helped my team greatly. We were often afraid to make large changes to critical pieces of the system since a full regression test could take a week or so to check everything. Now it takes an hour.
