Expected a bit more internal technical details.

It's always really fun to hear the creator of software you use talking about their software. Looking forward to the new features in v3. I've lost count of the number of times that XDebug has rescued me from debug hell :-)

Looking forward to v3

Excellent talk I was hoping to hear a little more about how xdebug works internally though

In this talk, Derick gave a good explanation about what is Xdebug and how difficult it's to maintain it. Showing his ideas about Xdebug version 3, we can see that there's a lot to do and a lot to contribute with. Well done 👍🏻

I didn't know what to expect when I attended that talk. It was quite interesting to see that only one person was behind xDebug. Thank you so much for this tool Derick. Looking forward to the new features. I would have loved to learn some tips or discover some use cases, but that was not the topic so, fair enough
