Creating code is only part of a programmer’s job. When software doesn’t work as expected, as a programmer, you are expected to get to the root of the problem quickly and effectively. Instead of spending hours blindly making changes, you should be a programmer who prefers to carefully investigate your code and research possible issues until an answer is found.
Sample interview question: How do you handle bugs in your code? (next, I would give them a trial run to debug code)
Debug code is computer code introduced to a computer program to test for errors or to help determine the cause of an error. It can be as simple as an echo command to print the value of a variable at certain points of a program.
