Martin,

Many months ago, I posted a tutorial on Debugging. There have been a lot of requests for it to be pinned up permanently. If we can find it, will you make it a Sticky

Since this is a personal not, feel free to delete it if you feel a need to do so.

Why not pin this up as a sticky http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=1146268&SiteID=1 - perhaps with an extended title (including debugger) as in the subject of this thread

Tim,

I think this is important, certainly not because I did it but for the following reasons.

  • What I have learned over time is that new developers are VERY shy about the debugger.
  • They will do almost anything not to admit that they are not using it.
  • I have seen new developers agonize for weeks over problems that they could solve in minutes if they knew how to single step.
  • Not being able to use a debugger limits the information that is posted as questions are asked and therefore slows down the process of getting meaningful answers.
  • One never hears new developers mention the debugger. It's always the experienced users who bring it up, me mostly.
  • This suggests to me the new developers are threated by the debugger because they do not understand it and do not appreciate what it can do for them when they have problems.
