The Little Issue That Could: Debugging and Contributing Patches on


I often get asked “When something breaks, what do I do next?” In this session we’ll follow the progress of an issue in a contributed module, from “I found a bug! ☹“ to “Status: Fixed.” There are many great sessions on how to use debugging tools, and how to debug in general. This session will combine the two, and show a real world example of the process.
