Debugging: How to Interpret a Stacktrace Discussion
Thanks, Chris. You consistently put out amazing content that I don't see anyone else doing. I appreciate the quality of your lessons. Keep up the awesomeness!
Hello Chris, This stuff is important! Especially when your back is against the wall. You should consider doing an entire series on debugging :) Good work.
I use byebug all the time to slow the program down and examine the state. That is an important tool. How to use it effectively, e.g., conditional break points, goes a long way in being able to fix runtime crashes or bugs.
Thanks, Chris. That's a super helpful video!
One thing I noticed was that you look at the docs for Rails 5 (http://api.rubyonrails.org/... and since the stack trace is from a Rails 3 version it's better to look at the corresponding docs, i.e. http://api.rubyonrails.org/...
Often they are the same, but sometimes the differences can catch you out.
