Xcode Debugging

About This Course

"If debugging is the process of removing bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in."
*Edsger W. Dijkstra* Debugging is yin to programming's yang; you can't have one without the other. However, finding bugs in programs can be an incredibly frustrating and demotivating process for developers. This course will teach you a variety of techniques to help make debugging your code easier.

Why Take This?

Debugging is one of the most fundamental processes involved in writing software. Nobody writes perfect code, and job-ready developers should know how to find and fix programming errors. In this course, you'll learn standard methodologies for debugging software—especially for iOS applications. Additionally, you'll learn how to use Xcode’s debugging tools (breakpoints, LLDB, etc.) to squash those bugs!

Prerequisites and Requirements

This course assumes rudimentary iOS programming experience. You should be able to scan Swift code to identify methods and errors, and make minor changes to correct them.
