Ever since a moth was stuck in a relay in the Mark II machine programmers have been dealing with bugs in their software. But programmers have developed tools for eradicating these bugs in their software. In this talk, Craig will show different methods for determining what the code is doing. We'll start with the lowly print statement and work our way to more advanced forms of logging. We'll also cover several Python debuggers and talk about best practices for debugging and preventing bugs in Python code.
