I'm admittedly pretty terrible at making videos but it may be useful to just see the basics. I'm using VSCode as the editor/debugger and I go into how that works with Pascal but obviously you could do this with Lazarus (I prefer the debugger in VSCode so I use that when I'm doing debugger heavy work).

Small tip: _the_ place to put your breakpoint in the compiler to catch
syntax errors, internal errors, and basically any other kind of error
that's not a crash/runtime error is verbose.GenerateError
