I love doing desktop tests with paper and pencil for complex functionalities with lots of logic. This helps me understand and better document my code.
That is great! It is sometimes good to write or draw our thoughts down on a good old piece of paper. They appear to make more sense when we can see them with our eyes. :)
I do this too! It's usually to try and understand what code someone else wrote is doing.
I'll take the excerpt I'm stuck on, print it out, and then draw lines between function calls, highlight areas, etc.
There really is something different about having it physically in front of you.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
