Perceptual Debugging

This talk is about approaching debugging as a perceptual learning task, covering how to use tools to reveal the patterns of your running application - to help understand what healthy and non-healthy flow within your app look like. More specifically this will cover the combination of things like audio breakpoints, sets of Instruments recording in unison, and in-app visual elements each adding to a mental image of what your application is doing. The interesting aspect of this talk is advocating for the use of tools traditionally used for debugging in order to gain a mental model of health before diagnosing problems.
