Beyond DevTools: Debugging by Proxy

Wednesday, September 3, 2014 - 6:30pm

You know your way inside and out when it comes to DevTools in all the browsers. You understand the network waterfall and can hunt down memory leaks with the best of them. However, you're hitting some sporadic issues on mobile, but you can't reliably reproduce them. Perhaps you've got some minified code in production and you'd really like to just replace it for debugging with unbuilt code, but you don't want to actually put your unbuilt app into production.

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Oh, JavaScript. Once a toy for animating menus and providing annoying pop-ups, the modern web would be nothing without it. While most people's experience with JavaScript is limited to client-side scripting, perhaps with the help from something like jQuery, JavaScript has matured. Using Google's V8 JavaScript engine, Node.js built from the ground up to be an asynchronous server-side platform for making cool things on the web.
