Coding vs. Debugging

I’m very glad that I don’t work in a dev shop that measures debuggers by lines/hour.  When I’m coding C, I write about 300 lines/hour.  I’m a bit slower with Java (needing to look up the reallyLongCamelCaseMethodNames()).  But I’ve been debugging this JPA Controller class in NetBeans 6.8 since yesterday evening (about 2 hours total).  Counting lines actually typed, I wrote 6 lines.  Counting the net difference in lines in source file before debugging versus lines in source file after debugging, I wrote -2 lines.  I’d end up owing my employer for those two lines I uncoded.  😛
