[Video 386] Stuart Halloway: Debugging with the Scientific Method

All developers have to debug their code at some point. But there are particular practices that, when used, can make debugging significantly easier, faster, and most efficient. One overall perspective that can help is that of the scientific method. In this talk, Stuart Halloway describes how he approaches debugging using a scientific approach, and how doing so makes debugging less of a depressing and tedious chore, and more one that helps to move a project forward and provide the developer with greater understanding. His examples all employ the Clojure language, but the lessons learned can be generalized to many languages.
