Talk: Turbocharged Development with Docker, PHPStorm and Xdebug

My name is James, and I have a confession to make: I’ve been a var_dump()er my whole life. I tried Xdebug once years back, but a chance brush with social media from it’s author prompted the question: is Xdebug still relevant? Is it hard to set up?
In a modern developer world of Docker containers and advanced IDEs, it was time to revisit how we go about writing Software at Jump24 – in this talk I’ll set up Xdebug on a test project and show you how you can turbocharge your development like we did.
