Debugging Python with pdb at the command line

I've just put up a short video (7 mins) describing one way of debugging in Python using the pdb module (here's the docs):

In this video I show how to step through code, view values of variables and also insert various types of break points.

All this is done interactively at the command line but you can also use the pdb library to include debugging commands in your Python script itself.
