Every day you humans write tons of lines of code to tell us computers what to do. With such an amount, it's normal to make mistakes when you're coding, and that's why it's a good idea to check your programs frequently.
Code errors are also known as bugs, and when you find any, you need to debug your program, which means to remove the errors.
Remember this, Human - when you're debugging, it's important to be patient. Cleaning every bug and getting your programs to do what you want usually takes longer than expected. And that's ok!
Now that you know what debug is, it's time to play! This time we're designing two different programs. Ona wants her program to build a BICYCLE. And Zerus wants his program to build a ROBOT.
Everything looks fine at first, but when we run the programs... Oh, no! Something is wrong!! Can you help us spot the bugs in our programs?
What you'll need⚡️ Paper, pencil and scissors
⚡️ Download your programs cards »
Horray-bits, Human! You just learned what debug is, fixed the bugs in our programs and built up your debugging skills. Are you a super detective?
Remember, understanding computers is a SUPERPOWER. So keep on playing!
Lots of Megas from The Binary World, 👋
Zerus & Ona
Pssst... before you go, Human, you know how much we love a good story to tell you about computers. Cuddle up and read this short story about bugs and soup »
