So you think you can program. You believe that you can write code. Well the sad story is that many people can write code. That’s the easy part. Writing good code is difficult. Writing bug free code is nearly impossible on the first try. Any complex application is always going to have bugs. Being able to effectively trace, isolate and fix those bugs is what separates the men from the boys.
Writing code is easy. It's just a matter of learning syntax. But if you have been in programming for any length of time, you will soon learn that it's not that easy. Most of the times, programmes and applications don't run first time. There are always bugs to be found and eradicated.
What I like to see in a programmer, is not only programming skills, but debugging skills as well. Traditionally it has been difficult to debug web applications. But Microsoft Visual Studio has some neat debugging tools built into the IDE.
I have written a beginners tutorial on using the VS IDE to debug your web apps. Have a look I am sure you will find it most useful.
Debugging and monitoring web applications Part I.
