Most coders think debugging software is about fixing a mistake, but that’s bullshit. Debugging’s actually all about finding the bug, about understanding why the bug was there to begin with, about knowing that its existence was no accident. It came to you to deliver a message, like an unconscious bubble floating to the surface, popping with a revelation you’ve secretly known all along.

    this is the exact same thing my Team Leader is trying to teach me (junior dev). each time i fix a bug he does not really care if it's fixed,he cares if I understand exactly WHY the bug was there in the first place :) my boss is awesome!
