That time when I entered a debugging writing contest
without any debugging experience.
When Hashnode announced their #DebuggingFeb Writeathon, I immediately decided to enter. It was a no-brainer: I'm an experienced writer and people generally find my work entertaining. It was also brainless: I've not yet learned how to identify bugs, much less eradicate them. But being a noob, this was the only chance I'd have to participate in a coding-related contest for a long time. So I sat down, wrote for half an hour, and entered the result in the contest, alongside all the proudly technical submissions. Here's my modest submission, and if you're on Hashnode yourself, show some love and be my friend there!
A Dry and Highly Technical Report on Debugging
j/k i have no idea what i'm doing!
Not pictured: thronging hordes of the underdark ... I mean bugs.
There you have it - a debugging article by someone who's never debugged. I hope was a refreshing breath of air for the contest judges. If they smile when they read it, that's prize enough for me. I hope you smiled, too. If you did, maybe share this with someone you think would enjoy it :D
