Python prints a traceback when an exception is raised in your code. The traceback output can be a bit overwhelming if you’re seeing it for the first time or you don’t know what it’s telling you. But the Python traceback has a wealth of information that can help you diagnose and fix the reason for the exception being raised in your code. Understanding what information a Python traceback provides is vital to becoming a better Python programmer.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
- Make sense of the next traceback you see
- Recognize some of the more common tracebacks
- Log a traceback successfully while still handling the exception

I liked the course, it gave me a clear understanding of what information the traceback is providing on exceptions. Also appreciate your pointing to the built-in traceback module for us to further explore now with a better understanding. Thanks
