  • Derick Rethans: Debugging – Past, Present and Future

    Derick Rethans: Debugging – Past, Present and Future

    WordCamp London 2016Speaker: Derick Rethans

    July 28, 2016 — In this talk I will go over all the past, present and future debugging techniques. The talk start by giving an overview on PHP’s (ancient) standard features for debugging, additional (userland) libraries and functionality in frameworks.

    After the introductions we move on to the meatier stuff and I will talk about live-action debuggers, such as Xdebug and PHP Storm.

    For the future, I will be talking about a project that allows you to “step back” while debugging as well; introspect what your script’s or application’s exact execution paths was; and trace variable modifications.

  • Eugenio Petullà: WordPress sucks!

    Eugenio Petullà: WordPress sucks!

    WordCamp Torino 2016Speaker: Eugenio Petullà

    April 25, 2016 — Tutti sanno che WordPress è pessimo, ma lo usiamo tutti, no? Questo talk esplora l’origine di questa patologia.

    Si parlerà di codice datato, di sistemi di versioning obsoleti, di rilasci e bugfix, di sistema ibrido CMS/Framework, di programmazione orientata agli oggetti, REST API e di repository. Tutto questi aspetti possono essere ritrovati nelle credenze e nei miti che circondano spesso l’ambiente WordPress. Conoscere bene il funzionamento, del software in primis, della community che c’è dietro e della mission poi, è l’unico modo per comprendere a pieno la potenza del prodotto che usiamo nel nostro quotidiano. Se poi lo facciamo con ironia ci divertiamo tutti di più!

    Micah Wood: Debugging in PHP

    WordCamp Asheville 2015Speaker: Micah Wood

    September 17, 2015 — The art of debugging code requires a good understanding of the codebase and logical deduction skills.

In this session, you will learn how to use Xdebug, a PHP debugging tool to.

  • Caspar Hübinger: Erwartungen debuggen

    Caspar Hübinger: Erwartungen debuggen

    WordCamp Cologne 2015Speaker: Caspar Hübinger

    August 26, 2015 — Egal, ob wir uns mit WordPress im Hinblick auf Anwendung, Entwicklung, Design oder ein Geschäftsmodell befassen – immer hängt unsere persönliche Erfahrung von Zufriedenheit und Erfolg mit der Erfüllung (oder Nichterfüllung) unserer Erwartungen zusammen.

    Erwartungen kann man „debuggen“, also auf Fehler in ihrem Kern hin untersuchen, und gefundene Fehler beseitigen; die eigenen am schnellsten, die von Anderen bis an die natürliche Grenze der individuellen Persönlichkeit.

    Gedebuggte Erwartungen heilen Wunden, vertreiben Trolle, beenden Kriege, umarmen verlorene Söhne und Töchter, lassen Sterntaler regnen und rosa Einhörner in deinem Wohnzimmer erscheinen.
