Course description
  • Xcode Debugging
  • 3 weeks
  • Print Statements, Breakpoints, and LLDB
  • Debugging is yin to programming’s yang; you can’t have one without the other. However, finding bugs in programs can be an incredibly frustrating and demotivating process for developers. This course will teach you a variety of techniques to help make debugging your code easier.
  • Debugging, Printing, Logging
  • Stepping Through Code
  • LLDB and Breakpoint Actions
  • Breakpoints and Visual Tools
  • Learn about the difference between warnings and errors in Xcode.
  • Look at an example app riddled with bugs to troubleshoot.
  • Outline a debugging process and use print statements to identify bugs.
  • Learn how to use breakpoints in Xcode.
  • Examine application state and stack frames during the execution of an application.
  • Diagnose and understand run-time problems using Xcode’s debugging tools.
  • Learn about LLDB (low-level debugger)—the debugging super tool.
  • Use LLDB commands to investigate issues in code.
  • Add actions to breakpoints to improve your debugging workflow.
  • Set special exception and symbolic breakpoints.
  • Use Xcode’s visual debugging tools to fix user interface problems.
  • Practice debugging and fixing issues in an existing application.
  • This course assumes rudimentary iOS programming experience. You should be able to scan Swift code to identify methods and errors, and make minor changes to correct them.
  • See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.
  • Debugging is one of the most fundamental processes involved in writing software. Nobody writes perfect code, and job-ready developers should know how to find and fix programming errors.
  • In this course, you’ll learn standard methodologies for debugging software—especially for iOS applications. Additionally, you’ll learn how to use Xcode’s debugging tools (breakpoints, LLDB, etc.) to squash those bugs!
