For every software engineer, it should require that he/she have problem-solving skills. Not only for software engineers but the persons who have their website must be aware of the problem-solving methods and techniques. In the development, it is obvious that at any phase of the development the problem will occur although the website completes its final stage and has gone through all testing. Sometimes there will be a situation when your website crash and have certain problems. So There to find a problem and for looking at its accurate and effective solution, It should be required that you are aware of the steps of problem-solving.
The software engineers think in a way that allows them to find an accurate and effective solution that fits best for the problem. Thinks like a developer is itself a creative thing. But learning happens naturally with training, time and experience. You can accelerate your learning by identifying and honing problem-solving skills So you can think like an experienced software engineer.
We all face problems, Having a problem is not bad, but not aware of how to solve a problem is itself a problem. Problems either it is big or small, you should have to know how to solve a problem efficiently.
For random problem solving, The general idea is:-
1. Try a solution.
2. If that doesn’t work, try another one.
3. If that doesn’t work, repeat step 2 until you luck out.
In General Software Development Problem can be divided into four steps:-
- Identify The Problem
- Gather Information
- Iterate Potential Solutions.
- Test Your Solution
For problem solving, first Identify The Problem:-
First of all, you should have to know what is the problem exactly. Sometimes finding a problem is very easy. You should get an error message either it is a syntax error or something else. But this is not the case always, sometimes what is seen at the frontend, is something different at the backend. So ask some questions to yourself.
- What am I trying to do?
- What have I done already?
- What do I think the program should be doing?
- What is it actually doing?
After you know what is the problem exactly. Now it’s a time to get some more information about it. Try to google and get some more information about it and try to find some relevant and co-releated solution.
Iterate Potential Solutions:-
Now it’s time to find the best possible solution among
the all. Breakdown the solution into sevral parts and try to solve the problem. Like don’t just copy paste all the code. Find the exact code that solves the problem.
Test Your Solution
Now it’s time to test the solution.
