Using `var_dump()` to debug your app has its benefits, but there are more comprehensive and efficient ways to debug those particularly illusive bugs. Enter step debugging. We'll be using Xdebug & the PhpStorm IDE to step through our PHP apps line by line and see how much more power step debugging gives us over the conventional `var_dump()` technique. We'll also touch on debugging from the command line. Learn to dance in PHP with step debugging.

Sammy this was one of the most well done talks I’ve ever seen! Great job.

This was a very polished and entertaining presentation. It has convinced me that xdebug might not be impossible to run in my development environment.
