Bugs, gotta catch 'em all
"My code is so perfect I never have any bugs"
In your dreams perhaps?
Let's be honest, we all end up in a situation where we need to do a bit of bug fixing. Some people are less fortunate and have to fix other peoples bugs. Niqui has been in that situation a good few times and has developed a few techniques to move projects through to a version ready for release.
Niqui will spend this session introducing core problem solving techniques, reviewing tools to assist with debugging and generally put a positive light on the dreaded situation that most of us find ourselves in at one point or other.
