Wisecrack6658185dI've started to document all the stupid mistakes I makes and the reasoning behind each fix, so maybe one day others can learn from it.
Like how errors in python involving enclosed quotes, are actually often scopes that were opened farther up but are missing colons.
I hate those ones in particular.
horus942185dThis is an interesting thought. I wonder if and how coding can be seen as a cultural technique for a while. To look at it from the debug side might be a hint.
Lexter1164185dWell, I've never been able to learn more than the basics from others. I'm too stupid for that. I learned the vast majority of it until I ran into a problem I couldn't immediately solve.
Oktokolo8317184dNormally you don't learn to debug and read logs from other people.
Parsing error messages is learnt by googling all the errors and that way learning patterns related to classes of problems.
Debugging is learnt by doing. Everyone has his personal style and experience will let you know what to look at first.
