Advanced Debugging with Chrome Dev Tools

A session at O'Reilly Fluent Conference 2017 in San Jose

Between race conditions, object references, and async stack traces, JavaScript can be really hard to sift through. Modern browsers give you so many tools for debugging, why not use them? And now that Node works out of the box with Dev Tools, you can step through your Node stack, as well! Learn the latest ways to masterfully march up and down your stack solving your code’s greatest mysteries.

Debugging JavaScript apps can be frustrating, usually defaulting to console logs to get info out of your app. However, this alone is not only inefficient, logs can often result in erratic output, depending upon the nature of the object.

This talk will cover lesser-known and new features of Chrome Dev Tools that allow developers of every skill level to step through their application’s code during even such difficult-to-debug scenarios as asynchronous callbacks, promises, race conditions, and performance tuning.
