In this video we'll be discussing some of the basics to debugging. In my videos, I get a lot of questions for help where people have errors and are not sure what the problem is. If they used some extremely simple debugging, they'd realize how obvious the answer is. Most of the time, the problem is a typo, followed closely by a misunderstanding of indentation and standards.
Standards how are how you organize your code. With python, unlike most languages, you define blocks of code, like functions, by indentation. Most python editors will automatically indent for you where it is necessary. With this, if you are ever coding along and find python automatically indenting you where you don't think it should, this should raise a flag for you to figure out.
There are some more in-depth common-issues that you'll find from time to time, you can find more debugging videos by searching for debugging in my channel. For now I will just keep these ones basic. The first error we'll discuss is the NameError: is not defined.
As obvious as this might appear to you, this gets people amazingly frequently. Just learn to recognize the "is not defined" as a high chance that you have typoed the definition of the variable or when you are calling it. Basically, you typo-ed somewhere.
