How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Interactive Debugging

A session at WordCamp Orlando 2013

Saturday 16th November, 2013

11:00am to 11:00am (EST)

For a long time I thought using a simple text editor like Sublime or Textmate was all a web developer needed.

However, using var_dump interjected in your code is not always the best solution.

We’ll walk through just how powerful using an IDE really is and what truly amazing things using a debugger can do for you.

Just imagine, being able to stop at any point of execution in your code, walk line-by-line through it and at any point see what variables are alive and what values they hold. It truly is like opening your eyes after being doing development blindfolded.
