This session teaches you how to detect and debug PHP scripts with the free
open source tool Xdebug, which is an extension to PHP. The first part will
quickly show how to get started with Xdebug. The second part of the session
will cover detecting problems in your scripts by showing how Xdebug provides
debugging aides in the form of stack/function traces, dumps of variables,
modified PHP functions. In the last part I will show the remote debugger
capabilities of Xdebug with different IDEs, where you can: set breakpoints on
functions, methods and file/line combinations and evaluating error messages.
On top of this you will also see how you can use Xdebug's profiler to find
bottlenecks in your applications. I will be focussing on the least known
features of Xdebug.

This presentation was as good as his presentation yesterday. Lot of GREAT AND VERY USEFUL information about how debugging and profiling PHP.

Definitely I'll start using XDebug, it seems will make my life waaaaaay easier and my nights a bit longer.

Good talk and thanks for making Xdebug! Personally I wish the slides had more detail in them. Config names on their own make me feel like I need to take notes about everything.

Also maybe less live demos? It kind of kills the pacing.

Sorry about the shocks! Thanks for suffering for us :)
