Here's a couple random questions for all the software engineers out there:

How do you debug your code?

Do you think there's room for tools to make your debugging process more efficient or effective?

@cuchaz A combination of ide debuggers and printing stuff, depending on the language.

There are probably ways they could be more efficient, but none that immediately come to mind. Generally when I'm debugging things, the tools aren't the bottleneck.

@shadowfacts Thanks! I’m curious because I mostly use print debugging, but it often feels slow and cumbersome. But debuggers don’t quite do what I want, so print debugging is still somehow the best tool for me. There’s gotta be a better way.
