About this event

• What we'll do
Chrome’s Developer Tools (or Dev Tools for short) are invaluable, yet often underutilized, resources for web developers of all skill levels.

Learning how to master them will ramp up your skill set and help you become a better developer in a number of ways-- you’ll become familiar with how the browser renders DOM elements, you’ll figure how to uncover inefficiencies in your code, and you’ll speed up your debugging process so that you can quickly find what’s wrong when your code isn’t working as expected.

This workshop will start with the basics and move through to advanced features so that students leave with an understanding of how and why they’d want to use each panel in DevTools.

We’ll cover the following:

• Customizing settings
• Inspecting and editing HTML + CSS in the Elements panel
• Viewing project directory files in the Resources panel
• Analyzing server requests in the Networks panel
• Performing code tests in the Audits panel
• Viewing error logs in the Console
• Using Device Emulation to debug touch events on desktop
• Stepping through breakpoints to debug JavaScript in the Sources panel
• And more!

• Your laptop. (Please note: A netbook or tablet is not a substitute.)
• Please bring a laptop with a text editor (Sublime Text 2 is recommended) and Chrome installed.
• Students should have a working knowledge of HTML and CSS. Familiarity with jQuery and JavaScript will be beneficial, but it is not required. INTERESTED IN TA-ING?
