Here’s a classic (but still very effective!) way to get started:
- find the line of code where the error happened
- trace backwards to investigate what could have caused that error. keep asking “why?”
example: - There’s an error on line 58… - that’s because this variable has the wrong value… - the value is set by calling this function… - that function is making an HTTP request to the API… - the API response doesn’t have the format I expected! Why is that?
In the corner of the page, there is an illustration of a goofy-looking bug with a long neck and curly antennae saying “Chase me!”
