Some people don't like to debug code. In fact, I'd venture that most coders wouldn't rank that activity too highly. But I actually really like it! And I think I'm pretty good at it. I enjoy spelunking through code trying to figure out what makes it tick and also trying to throw odd things at a piece of code to see how it reacts. This week, I committed the following fixes to Mojo:
support HEAD requests on server-side;
problem on chunked request with trailing headers.
One thing I've found is that, of course, since I am debugging a codebase I am just getting familiar with, I am much slower than someone like Sebastian or my mentor Viacheslav Tikhanovskii. What this implies is that when I find a bug, I'm better off not telling them about it over IRC right away, because then they pounce all over it and I don't get the learning experience that chasing it down would have given me... :) I'm still learning my way around git, github and the Perl debugger, but all in all things are coming along nicely. Anyway, I feel I'm already having a positive impact on the project, if I may say so myself. And I'm having fun!
