Debugging in Node.js

Hey everyone. Debugging is an essential part of programming, our program hardly runs correctly in the first run and we spend most of our time figuring out what’s wrong with our code. To quote Maurice Wilkes here:

“As soon as we started programming, we found to our surprise that it wasn’t as easy to get programs right as we had thought. Debugging had to be discovered. I can remember the exact instant when I realized that a large part of my life from then on was going to be spent in finding mistakes in my own programs.”– Maurice Wilkes

Since debugging is this important, it’s almost a skill that we must learn to be a better programmer and ship features quickly. In this lesson, we will learn about debugging a node application. We will learn about different ways which can be employed to debug node application with ease. Here’s a list of things we will cover in this article:
