When debugging, novices insert corrective code; experts remove defective code. — Richard Pattis

Here, I completely agree with Richard Pattis’ statement. When we debug, We learn a lot and become a better developer.

I have learned a lot by debugging the code and still learning so many things.

Now let’s see why Debugging is a Learning Opportunity For Developers?

  • Get to know about more edge-cases: When you debug for solving issues which your users are facing, you get to know about more corner-cases which you would have considered at the beginning only. It will help you in handling every corner-cases while implementing any new features.

These things strongly prove that why Debugging is a Learning Opportunity For Developers.
