Day 204 - 09/12/2007

Always the technology, never the user.

Yet again, one of my colleagues proved my mantra. We had a lessons learned meeting and he stated that one of the reasons why he couldn't move forward was because he was using a new tool (JavaScript) and he didn't have the right debugging tools.

"It's hard to debug 1000s of lines of code when you're writing in Notepad." he said.

Or something like that.

I'm wondering whether this is the last person in the world who hasn't heard of Google. After the meeting, I typed "How do you debug JavaScript?" in Google and got a great result set. Within the first ten items I found out there are multiple ways of debugging JavaScript.

Like I said: Always the technology, never the user.
