Debugging is an integral part of software development life-cycle.
Depending on the nature of encountered failure, complexity of software
under the test and integrated debugging options, a different approach
may be suited for each case.
In this talk, we will have a quick review of basic concepts, common bug detection and debugging strategies, and available tools. Afterwards, we will see how various tracing methods/tools, builtin (static and runtime) compiler checks, and debuggers such as `gdb` can be used for diagnosing errors. Some practical aspects of software development for testing and debugging will also be discussed.
Meet MPCDF: A seminar of this series is given on the first Thursday of the month, from 15:30 to 16:30, and features a technical talk (ca. 20-30 minutes) about an AI, HPC or data-related topic given by a staff member of the MPCDF. In addition, this meeting offers the opportunity for the users to informally interact with MPCDF staff, in order to discuss relevant kinds of technical topics. Optionally, questions or requests for specific topics to be covered in more depth can be raised in advance via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Target audience are intermediate to advanced users of MPCDF services as well as computational scientists and software developers of the MPG. Users seeking a basic introduction to MPCDF services are referred to our semi-annual online workshop "Introduction to MPCDF services" (see above) which offers a consistent introduction for new users of the MPCDF.
