Somewhat of an add to step 3, try searching your own team/org projects in git for similar words and functions you are using (and getting errors for). Many times, someone else has implemented or used something similar, allowing you to learn from their example without having to go to them directly.

Also search the issue tracker, in case of a bug.

A secret tactic: search the issue tracker once more, when cause was found. Others might have stumbled in the same problem.

It happened to me that the fix just unlocked a second bug, and all that (along with a fix for a third bug) was already found and solved in a different release.
