Abstract

Previous work has shown that end-user developers (EUDs) find diagnosing and fixing circuit bugs in physical computing prototypes challenging. This paper reports on the design of a card deck to support troubleshooting by novice EUDs. The deck provides EUDs with ideas for different troubleshooting tactics and guides them in their use by encouraging reflection to help build EUDs’ troubleshooting knowledge and skill. We describe the design process and the resulting card deck. Our work contributes a new way of supporting EUDs in troubleshooting physical computing prototypes.
