Debugging is always a pain. It’s especially painful when you var_dump, echo, and print everything to your browser. But it doesn’t need to be like that! We’ll take a look at XDebug, what it is, (maybe how to install it, but that sounds boring), and what benefits it will provide you while you are developing an application. Know what your app is thinking, doing, and seeing!
This presentation will be given by Kalen Johnson (irc: kalen | twitter: @kalenjohnson ) as part of his farewell tour. That’s right our friend Kalen will be leaving us and the good city of San Diego for other opportunities and we managed to milk one more presentation out of him before he left.
Kalen has given us great presentations in the past on topics such as WordPress, Grunt, and Gulp as well as he did the WordPress theme redesign of the SDPHP website. Let’s make sure we show him how much we appreciate his contributions to the SDPHP User Group by giving him a big showing for his final SDPHP Presentation and the final Downtown SDPHP for 2014.
