Mozilla Bugathon Solution - Software Debugging

    Thank you. Here comes the answer.
  • 0:02 - 0:05
    The answer, of course, is you put the part back in,
  • 0:05 - 0:07
    and you try to remove other parts. Why is that so?
  • 0:07 - 0:11
    Well, if you remember our discussion of the scientific method in the first unit,
  • 0:11 - 0:15
    what you just had is you set up a hypothesis on why the failure occurred.
  • 0:15 - 0:19
    You removed some part, and you observed that after removing this part,
  • 0:19 - 0:23
    your hypothesis on what the failure is no longer holds,
  • 0:23 - 0:26
    so you go back to your earlier hypothesis and remove other parts.
  • 0:26 - 0:30
    Trying to keep only the part and remove everything else makes little sense,
  • 0:30 - 0:32
    and keep on removing until the failure occurs again also is very unlikely to happen.
