Discover Chrome DevTools - Our new interactive course

Today, we are launching Discover DevTools, an interactive Code School training course that will teach you how to take advantage of Chrome DevTool's powerful suite of resources and speed up the development and debugging of your web apps.
   
In each of the seven chapters of this interactive course, you can watch an overview video teaching you the latest techniques, and follow a series of challenges where your knowledge will be put to the test. We've integrated the Chrome DevTools themselves into the course, so as you explore the functionality within them, you'll get immediate feedback and earn points and badges.

Even regular users of the Chrome DevTools may be surprised to find some lesser-known features from this course that can really boost productivity. You'll learn a debugging workflow to go from an uncaught exception to a live fix without ever refreshing your app. In addition, the course will share time-saving tricks to improve your efficiency while debugging CSS, improving reflow issues, and interpreting your network and JavaScript bottlenecks. You'll also uncover the DOM bottlenecks that are blocking you from delivering a slick 60 FPS experience.

We hope you’ll try out the Discover DevTools course and see how Chrome DevTools can make you a more productive developer.
