Tools for Debugging and Testing


Perhaps the most time-consuming process when developing in any programming language is that of testing and debugging your code. With professional-grade code it becomes of the utmost importance to make sure that what you create is fully tested, verifiable, and bug-free. One aspect that makes JavaScript so different from other programming languages is that it isn’t owned or backed by any one company or organization (unlike C#, PHP, Perl, Python, or Java). This difference can make it challenging to have a consistent base with which you can test and debug your code.
