Build a mini Ruby debugger in under 300 lines

As developers, we know that the best way to learn is by doing. Many of us have built mini-rails, mini-sinatra, and even mini-rubies. But have you ever built your own debugger?

In this talk, I'll show you how to create a mini Ruby debugger that's both powerful and fun to use. You'll learn how to:

  • Run your program with debugger with a simple command
  • Set breakpoints and through debugger commands
  • Step through your code to find bugs
  • And best of all, you'll do it all in under 300 lines of code!

Don't miss out on this opportunity to level up your debugging skills and have some fun along the way.
