There is definitely a time and place, but the debugger it such an invaluable tool.

True.

My usage of the debugger is virtually zero, so it’s good to be reminded that maybe I shouldn’t fill my code with console.log and use a dedicated tool instead.

Definitely! You will only get better and understand your code much better! In fact for most other languages a debugger use is considered a required skill. My next post is about using the debugger in Firefox, which directly translates to Chrome as well. If you would like I can let you know when that is live 😊

Sweet! I primarily use Firefox. Do update me when it’s up.

Any chance that you use VSCode? A debugger tutorial for that will definitely be helpful too.

Awesome! I will do just that!

And I don't use vscode. I am a big Jetbrains person. But I would be happy to put together a tutorial! Thank you for the recommendation, I really appreciate it!
