Pernosco shows that debuggers can be vastly more powerful than what people have today. Just as importantly, we have shown we can integrate debugging into developer workflows where debugging is currently infeasible. Yet there is still a lot more potential for improving the debugging experience further, to make developers even more efficient and happy. Expectations and hopes for improved debugging tools should be much higher than they currently are.
For Pernosco itself, a key question is whether our workflow integrations are enough for developers to use Pernosco for the majority of their debugging. Another key question is whether Pernosco is good enough to overcome the formidable barrier of developer inertia. Perhaps the most important question of all is whether we can overcome the cultural expectation that debuggers are free. We shall see.
