As a new coder, I found the process of debugging overwhelming. There were so many resources out there, so many possible errors, and always the likelihood that my error was being caused by multiple issues at once. At that point, my default response to an error was to just ask for help from another coder. I thought, “Shouldn’t there be a systematic way for me to do this myself?”
It is my hope that we can continue to test and build on this in order to create a resource for future coders like me who need a logical way to think about debugging.
