Discussion on Debugging and Improving the Xano Buy Box Parameters Code
The State Changers meeting revolved primarily around debugging code related to a process involving tests for speed limits and other parameters, embedded into a system called "Xano". They also discussed issues related to processes incorrectly marking certain tests as failed or passed.
Specifically, the discussion started with issues in parameters involving the Buy Box process. The team found discrepancies in the functionality of the speed limit test. Despite the test returning a pass, it was still improperly marked as failed in the system.
In-depth debugging revealed an issue with the placement of a “stop and debug” statement, which should have prevented the code from executing past a certain point. However, the meeting revealed that the code was proceeding to the next step despite the speed limit test failing.
Further discussions revealed misplacements and improper structuring of if-else statements, which were potentially causing unexpected outcomes. The team found that some tasks were unnecessarily running due to the misplaced 'else' statements and related code. Similar mistakes were observed in the RDC Revisited Test.
Another part of the discussion related to the handling of HC details, especially related to square footage parameters.
The participants conducted live code debugging throughout, validating their assumptions with run-time testing. By the end of the meeting, they were able to resolve the initial issues and planned to continue further testing to validate the overall performance.
Key tools mentioned included Xano, a back-end development platform. Other concepts alluded to include database interaction, code structuring, debugging, and live code testing.
