Become a Better Developer With Debugging Techniques for Drupal (and more!)
By Dustin Younse
What is debugging? Why should you bother with server side tools like the Devel suite, krumo, xdebug, or client side debugging using Firebug and LiveHTTPHeaders?
In this session we will give you a tour of useful debugging tools and techniques that can help you start to see into the inner workings of any version of Drupal, and give you a look behind the curtain at just what the browser is doing while the spinner spins.
While we all use and love Drupal, these techniques can apply to all web applications, whether they run PHP or not. A structured debugging approach narrows down problems, rather than using random changes and guesses, and can help you shut your laptop earlier on Friday, and enjoy your weekends!
And of course, the audience will have a chance to share any debugging tricks or war stories they have during a question and answer session at the end.
