Change your life with Xdebug
In this practical session I'll guide you through the process of getting Xdebug set up in your development environment.
The session is aimed at developers who have not yet harnessed the power of the debugger in their PHP development. We'll configure Xdebug at the server level and then explore the configuration options in common IDEs. We'll then use some practical exercises to explore how using a proper debugger can make your development drastically more efficient, quicker and more fun!
Bring your laptop along with Vagrant (https://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html) and VirtualBox (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads) installed. You'll also need an IDE capable of integrating with Xdebug. We'll concentrate on PHPStorm and NetBeans in this session.
