Summer Thesis Research Table

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Frost Library, Research Tables (1st floor)

The thesis research table is a regular meet-up for students who are starting work on a thesis (or other similar long-term research projects). Each week, we’ll start with reflective accountability check-ins and then focus our discussion on a particular aspect of the research and writing process. Drop in or attend regularly. We'll provide the donuts! Hosted by Frost Library and the Writing Center.

Students Only
Several lines of Python code, intended for debugging

Debugging and Version Control for Programming

Want your computer code to be perfect? Start by realizing that you will make mistakes when writing it! In this class you’ll learn how to discover and fix your errors. We will cover basic principles of debugging applicable to any programming language, though examples will use the Python language and its standard debugger pdb. Sometimes you’ll also want to try out new ideas without ruining the code that’s already working. We will therefore learn the basics of using the Git version control system, which makes it easy to fall back to an earlier version of your code if necessary. Git is also an important tool for collaborating with others, so that you can safely experiment with fixing errors in their code and taking it in new directions.

Snacks and drinks will be provided!
