When we learn to code, we focus on writing features while we understand what the code is doing. When we debug, we don’t understand what our code is doing. The less we understand, the less likely it is that our usual programming mindset—the one we use for feature development—can solve the problem.
It turns out, the skills that make us calmer, more effective debuggers also equip us to deal with rapid, substantial changes to our lives. Whether you are uncertain about what is going on in your code, your life, or both, in this talk you will learn debugging techniques to get you moving forward safely.
