Today's Lesson

This write-up is going to be VERY short. Just want to note some of the tips and tools Angela mentioned.

General Tips

There were a few general tips she mentioned that always come in handy when debugging:

  • Descripe the problem
  • Reproduce the bug
  • Evaluate each line
  • Utilize print()....a lot lol
  • Using an actual Debugger

I won't go into the details of each but I have some other resources bookmarked if needed.

The Debugger

The Debuggers she recommended were Thony (desktop app) and Python Tutor (pythontutor.com). I downloaded Thony but didn't seem to be working for me (most likely not doing something correct on my end) so I used PT. Also, PT shows a visualization along with the step-by-step of the program.

EOD

Like I said, very short write up but I did learn a few good tips for debugging.
