Talk at PHP UK Conference 2018 (English - US)

Rating: 3 of 5

Debugging in PHP can be tedious and prone to error when using var_dump and echo statements. Learn how to debug more effectively and get better insight into an application by using Xdebug. See how to setup PhpStorm, Xdebug, and the browser to enable debugging that will let you step into code and see variable values live. Extend those debugging capabilities into cli, APIs, and SOAP clients to increase the code that can be debugged with ease.

Decent introduction to Xdebug, although there was a bit too much time spent on installing.

Clear speaker although the pace was a little slow

I'm going to be honest here and say that this wasn't really that exciting. The topic is definitely pretty good but the talk itself could use a bit more engagement.

You should certainly keep it up as I truly believe this can become a great talk.

I found this talk very specific to PHPStorm, I am not a user of it so It was hard to follow.

Well worth a listen if you have never looked at xdebug. Felt the pace was stalled by detailing the installation.

Might benefit from some coverage of how to identify and resolve setup issues as this an area I know a lot of people struggle with.

I think this talk would have been better labelled as getting xdebug installed. Most of the talk was about installation once past it was interesting to see how it can be used.

I was really grateful for the large portion of time dedicated to getting it installed, because it's looked too big and scary and confusing to me before. The examples after that were great, and I'm going to start using it today. I'm now referring to the slides to help get it installed, today.
