Hello, experienced developer here. Should FreeCodeCamp have a tutorial on “how to make sense of error messages?”
I sometimes get questions from co-workers and others saying “it failed. Here’s the error message.” And then I get a big fat traceback from a browser console log, or an OS error like ECONNRESET, or another kind of error message. And often people send these error messages as screenshots.
My problem: lots of people, even devs and support professionals, don’t know how to look at error messages. They just chuck them over the wall to more experienced devs.
If there were a basic tutorial on how to read them, I suspect a lot more people would get a lot more work done. And they’d definitely feel a bit more empowered.
Does FreeCodeCamp accept contributed articles? I could try to create this tutorial, if there isn’t one already.
