This talk is for developers who want to know how to debug their code in a better way, through single step debugging, profiling, and simpler debugging tools.

Xdebug is a PHP extension that implements many debugging aids and features. In this presentation we are going to look at this new version of Xdebug 3. The new version is a near total rewrite, and brings many improvements over its older releases. You will learn how to optimally use the new features and settings to make your development life easier.

Besides introducing the redone functionality, we will also have a cursory look at how these features are implemented, just to provide a better understanding of what a debugging extension, can, and cannot do.

Xdebug is interesting to whole php community, and be prepared that other people can help you with Xdebug extension.

Good insight about next version of the tool we all use.

Great talk. Turns out one guy is developing one of the most important tools in a PHP professional's belt, so I'm a bit paranoid now. Thanks for that! :P
