How can you better solve complex coding problems? Here are a few tips:
Write your tests first, and then your code. Like this you can immediately check if your code is doing what you want. Also this helps to have all your code covered with tests.
Use the debugger
The debugger is very powerful, as you can run and stop your code line by line and see which values your variables have at the corresponding line, for example.
Write detailed pseudo-code
With pseudo-code you write down in “normal language” what your code is supposed to do. Its important that you write very detailed and exact pseudo-code, so that its easy for you to fill in the actual code later.
Use coverage tools
There are different coverage tools available, which check which parts are covered by tests and to what degree. Like this its easy for you to fill in the gaps.
