Chapter: Problem solving techniques for writing software
Lecture: Concept: Remember the debugger
0:00 Now that we're at the end and I've given you all these problem solving techniques and ideas I want to remind you to not forget your debugger.
0:08 If you're using something like PyCharm or Visual Studio Code you can go through and see exactly what is happening as you're going through your code.
0:15 Though if you get stuck if you're trying to understand what the data that's coming from some servicer or from a file or something looks like
0:22 one of the options is to just put a break point in here and you can explore this data extensively. Other things you can just put a print statement
0:30 and pass the variables. Sometimes that will show what the data looks like. Not always, but sometimes and that's nice.
0:36 But the debugger is definitely your friend if you get stuck and you have a hard time visualizing and understanding what's happening.
