“Keep Calm and Use The Debugger”

This is the first National Meeting, hosted in conjunction with Melbourne branch on their regular meeting night.

Malcolm Groves will be presenting his postponed 2022 Symposium talk on Debugging, on Monday, 15th August at 7:00 pm Melbourne time.

A brief description ..

It’s very possible that the necessary tool to help you solve the problem faster, and with less swearing, is right there in the IDE already. The Delphi and C++Builder Debuggers have a wide range of features, and in many cases people either aren’t aware of them, or don’t know quite when to use them.

So that’s what we’re going to focus on in this session. We’re going to dive deep into Debugger features and options that maybe you haven’t used, and see how to practically use them to identify and solve problems in your code.

No 3rd party products needed, only things shipped in the box. Also, I’m going to assume you already know how to use a basic Breakpoint, Step Into/Step Over, a basic Watch and that you already know how to swear. So I won’t be teaching those things in the session.

Mark this event in your diary .. a symposium presentation for free!

The meeting opens at 6:00pm for 6:15pm with the regular news and questions starting the night.

Malcolm’s presentation starts at 7:00 pm, allowing attendees a little more time to get home from work and settled. Be prepared for a good 90 minutes of entertaining and practical learning.

In the time between regular news and questions, and Malcolm’s talk, we will be having a general discussion on different tools we use debugging when the IDE is not appropriate. All input welcome.
