    Having worked with Varun on few projects and listened to few of his talks, I’m sure his session will be full of useful content and also it will be presented in a interesting way.

    It would be great to show Opera’s Developer tools too (Opera Dragonfly) along with the others and how to do remote debugging with that.

    • Varunkumar Nagarajan (@varunkumar) Proposer 7 years ago

      Sure. I will include DragonFly as well in the session.

    This is a very interesting topic and much needed information for any web developers for today. I’m looking forward to learn something new from your talk!

    Sessions are only half an hour long at this edition of JSFoo. I’m concerned that this session has too much material to fit into half an hour and therefore needs to be broken up into two or more sessions.

    • Varunkumar Nagarajan (@varunkumar) Proposer 7 years ago

      I wasn’t aware of this. Can I do this something like a workshop which spans for 1-1.5 hrs where in I can show these tools in action?

  • Nahalingam (@nahalingam) 7 years ago

    are you planning to cover some thing on JavaScript Profiling also, as the tools for that varies from browser to browser?
