15+ Ways to Debug Drupal 8

Day: 
Saturday
Time: 
2:15p
Room: 

Learning Drupal 8 has presented some challenges for front-end developers. While Twig is extremely easy to use, getting the data you need into your template and manipulating that data once they are available can be a challenge.

This session will cover:

Understanding composer
Finding and tailing error logs
Lesser-known browser tricks
Interactive debugging with an IDE
Twig-specific debugging and variable inspection techniques
Setting up your local environment for debugging
Getting started with Drupal Console
Drupal modules that can help with development
and more!

Each of the 15+ techniques will be shown through video demonstration and references will be provided. I will be explicit about appropriate use-cases and any dependencies. This session is designed with front-end developers in mind but all are welcome.

This ever-evolving session has been presented at Drupal 8 Day, SANDcamp, and Stanford Drupal Camp, and DrupalCon Baltimore.
