In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to test and debug your code in Visual Studio Code. You will find the bugs in a sample program and fix them. Topics covered include: building code for debugging, breakpoints, watch, call stack, conditional breakpoints, function breakpoints, and debug console. Note: This course uses a C++ program as a learning tool. Basic knowledge of C++ is useful but any coding experience of a modern and similar language (such as C, Swift, Java, JavaScript, Kotlin) will suffice.
