in thread How to debug unknown dynamic code?

You appear to be missing the main point of the overall thread.

Debuggers find bugs and hide larger scale design issues. I am willing to put up with pain in solving specific stupid bugs if it gives me more of an opportunity to keep my overall design clean. Many excellent programmers agree. Many others disagree. But it isn't a trivially wrong choice.

[marto]: good morning all, TCIF
[Corion]: Hi marto! Indeed, Crunchy be thanked!
choroba had a Christams party at work yesterday. Slow morning today...
[Corion]: I guess I should not read some discussions on HackerNews - the crowd there is weirdly different - "you have to stay current in tech" (by following all the latest JS trends) is a meme there, but it doesn't really match my experience
[Corion]: At least in my area, experience can beat most new tech anyway because most new tech is just a rehash of things abandoned in the 70s and we still have a lot of that ;)
