The Stages of Solving an Error

Denial

Checking for exceptions and errors. Make sure your syntax is correct and complete. Prepare to break out the genius.

I can solve this. I just gotta think it through with my thoughts.

 

Bargaining

You’ve looked and tried a couple of things… it’s not working. Maybe there’s a solution on the interwebs. You do your Googles. Stack Exchange, reddit, dev forums, you name it, you search it. If it might work, you try it.

Frustration

(also known as Being Hangry and/or Exhausted)

Why have I been cursed with the worst error known to man? Why specifically me?

 

Acceptance

Checking Line by Line for exceptions and errors (again). Looking for compatibility issues that may have arisen between browsers, updates, etc. Asking a coworker for a second set of eyes.

Face it, you’ve missed something.
