Introduction to Debugging with Python

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.

Craig Maloney was obsessed with computers after finding out that the Apple II was a microcomputer. His parents finally purchased him an Atari 400 which catapulted him to learn about computers and programming. He's an avid Python developer and classic computer afficianado, and currently serves on the Michigan!/usr/group board.

Board Elections

We'll be voting on the 2017-2018 tenure for the board of the Michigan!/usr/group. This 6-person team is responsible for the direction of the group and has a direct impact on the presentations for each month. This is a great opportunity to volunteer and become part of the decision-making process for the Michigan!/usr/group.

Nominations may be sent to board@mug.org, or may be given at the beginning of the meeting. Voting will occur during the meeting. 

Plus we'll have our regular features: Jobs Looking for People, People Looking for Jobs, and much more! We'll also be meeting for dinner at Red Lobster in Novi after the meeting.
