Debugging Techniques for Drupal (and other LAMP applications)


A structured debugging approach that narrows down problems, rather than making random changes and guesses, is the main point of this talk.

Following that is an overview of a variety of tools such as the Devel suite, krumo, xdebug, client side debugging such as Firebug and LiveHTTPHeaders. In addition to debugging functionality, approaches to performance related problems will be covered. Some of these techniques apply generally to all web applications or other PHP code.

The audience will have a chance to share any debugging tricks they have during a question and answer session. A brief overview of books and other related material is also included.
