While var_dump driven development is great when you're starting, at some point every developer wants more. Step debugging is the answer. In this session we'll cover the fundamentals of installing and configuring Xdebug, configuring PhpStorm to listen to Xdebug, and then actually step debugging some scripts to find our problems. Step debugging PHP is an incredibly easy and powerful tool when you know how!

Amazing! Even if I use the xDebug on a daily basis I just remind some useful features that I constantly forgot about. The presenter made the live demo really smooth and interesting 🙌

Great talk to start using xdebug!

Gary is always great on the stage but i don't know, for me the topic was way too basic

Great talk!
