Zero Edge This thread on hackernews has me completely baffled: news.ycombinator.c... . I cannot imagine debugging without a debugger. People in the thread act like step debugging you simply step through the entire code and don't simply place breakpoints at the places you want to look. I am so confused... I mean I use print every once in a while but I cannot imagine the kind time I would waste not using a proper debugger. Maybe I am just spoiled using Visual Studio and other modern ide's suck? You're telling me you print an entire hash table to inspect a few elements for improper data??

🏒 Lucian Marin I never used a debugger. A function or class should fit in my head otherwise it should become another function or class.

Zero Edge I guess it depends on the language? Are you mostly in JS or what? You don't step through your code when testing it?
🏒 Lucian Marin I started using the debugger from Visual Studio Code. The new Python project I'm working on is so badly written that I have to use the debugger for each task.
