Debugging Checklist

Today I just would like to list off a simple debugging checklist for you to consider when working on your own programs…

  • Ensure parentheses and curly braces match up (code organization helps this)
  • Avoid typos, especially in variable/function names
  • Be consistent with the use of single and double quote usage
  • Use escape characters (\)
  • Be careful not to use ‘=’ when you actually mean ‘==’
  • Be certain elements/objects have been created before attempting to use them (undefined error…applies to DOM elements in particular)
  • Do not create shadow variables…name global and local variables differently


The aforementioned is a simple, short list, but will go a long way in helping you avoid bugs in your code right from the start.


Happy Coding!
