Last night I gave a talk at the monthly PHP London meeting all about XDebug and kCacheGrind – I only just noticed I made an earlier post on here which lamented the lack of awareness about these excellent tools.
The talk went OK after a late start, and took rather longer than I though it would. I didn’t have a very well defined end point so it kind of petered out, but it seemed to go down OK, and there were some good questions. The MacBook worked great after I remembered to pick up the right kind of video adapter…
You can download a PDF of the presentation here.
Marcus Baker’s talk on “Is agile development right for you?” was entertaining and thought provoking.
I had some great conversations beforehand, and I completely failed to talk to Demian after he kindly bought me a beer!
Having two Marcus B’s around can get confusing too…
Somehow I didn’t get home until about 2am.

Unfortunately I can’t seem to post on the earlier “Xdebug” post, but I would be interested in viewing the PHP XDebug + kCacheGrind presentation. However, the following link appears to be broken at present:
I’ve just moved my blog from s9y to wordpress and found your comment. I’ve moved it to the right article and reconnected the download link. Thanks for the heads-up!
In general, your cogtniurafion looks fine. The only suspicious line as for me is xdebug.profiler_output_name = xdebug_profile.%R::%u . It specifies the file name that contains the colon symbol. From your listing I assume that you’re running Windows, so the file system is probably NTFS or FAT. Both of them disallow to use :’ for a file name.
That post was 9 years ago! I’m on OS X, which has no problem with colons in filenames, though now I use a config of “callgrind.%s.%t” so that it matches what qcachegrind expects.
