I find investigating a bug with someone else SO MUCH more fun than doing it alone.
Illustrations of two smiling stick figures, one with short curly hair, and one with longer straight hair.
Debugging together lets you:
- Teach each other new tools!
person 1: I wish we could find out x, but that’s impossible…
person 2: Let’s use my favourite tool, strace!!!!!!
- Learn new concepts!
person 2: What is this CORS thing?!?!
person 1: Oh, I can explain that!
- Keep each other on track
person 2: Maybe the problem is Y?
person 1: We already ruled that out! Right, I forgot!
