Hi. First of all congratulation for this book, seems to be promising a lot of good topics according to the table of contents.
My question is about the debugging area, does your book have recommendations about how to debug code or offers some tips once you apply those javascript concepts, that could help the developer not only to develop ninja code, also allow them to debug it and why not troubleshoot existing code?  I see appendix B have a section, but this will be as best practices or recommended tips ?

Thanks.

Hi Mauricio,

In the appendix we introduce basic and intermediate debugging techniques (console logging, breakpoints, conditional breakpoints), and throughout the book we also introduce some more advanced concepts (e.g. using proxies for logging).

Unfortunately, covering advanced usage of developer tools takes up a lot of space in a book (and quickly becomes outdated as the dev tools change), so video courses are probably a better option. Have you seen this one: http://discover-devtools.codeschool.com/

Yes, actually I was most interested in the concept, techniques which seem that are going to find in the book. About tools, I agree with you that changes very quickly and thanks for the link I will be very helpful.

Thanks.
 
this is supposed to be a surprise, but it smells like a tiny ad:
