Umar is a front-end web developer at Shazam based in London, with a focus on writing tips, tutorials and documentation for the web platform. One of the projects he plans to explore and share with the community is using tooling such as the Chrome DevTools for an improved development workflow, but also for debugging performance issues.
Umar reveals how the web application development landscape is rapidly changing. Tools are improving to such an extent that the usual “edit + refresh” cycle is fading away for many use cases. DevTools is not just a tool for inspecting the styling of elements, but rather it’s a suite of tools which all developers and designers should be familiar with to improve their efficiency. The audience can expect to learn hidden DevTools secrets but also how to adopt a modern development and debugging workflow.
