Step Into Debugging

Excellent refresher on how to use PhpStorm and Xdebug. Humor was great and well placed. Great job!

He warned us that it was pretty basic but I stuck around anyway and learned that things are little different (for the better) as far as config goes when using xDebug56 with PHPStorm (and hopefully that means with IntelliJ IDEA).
As with his other talk I attended, clear, concise, informative, and entertaining.

Great live test run!

Great class. Yet another temptation to switch to PHPStorm.

Made me really want to get xcode up and running, even on the crappy wifi here. The only thing I would add is maybe lising some of the other editors that xdebug is known to run in (well the major ones that the community typically uses).

By the time this talk finished, I had enabled xDebug in MAMP and actually gotten a modicum of debugging in MacGDBp. Though I had some troubles, they were not because of the presentation. The mere fact that I got as far as I did was a credit.

Even though I've used this stuff I learnt some tips and really enjoyed the delivery

Excellent talk, the information and use of PHP Storm has made be a believer in both Step Debugging and that PHP Storm is Awesome!

I really wanted to attend this one, but it conflicted with another session I wanted to attend. In the last 6 months, I was able to get xdebug working finally in PHPStorm & it's made development easier.

I was hoping to see slides that there might be something else I'm missing in how to use it. Thanks!

Excellent use of humor and humility.

My main application does some things on the back-end that never see the light of http. I really appreciated this refresher of step-debugging and that debugging from a browser session AND the CLI were highlighted. I was able to use this almost a week later at work while trying to figure out why my changes to the API were throwing nasty errors while loading fixtures. Without step-debugging, this would largely be a guess and check with `var_dump`. With step-debugging from the CLI, I was able to quickly discern the actual problem and provide a hotfix. Woo!

And to add to @GeeH's bank account: "PhpStorm is AWESOME!"

Good talk on debugging. Definitely something I will look more into.
