JavaScript is a beautifully simple and elegant language.  It puts virtually no restrictions on what you can do; and since it’s a dynamic language, you can modify it on the fly and debug it right in the browser.  However, it’s great forgiving nature can also be a source of maddening frustration.  JavaScript will let you call methods and properties that don’t exist, create malformed objects and has zero protection against silly mistakes.  If you are going to be productive with Kendo UI, it’s essential that you become very comfortable with your browser’s developer tools.  These tools will be a more essential part of your workflow than even your IDE.

In this screencast, I make several common errors and use the Chrome Developer Tools to squash all of the bugs while digging myself out of a completely busted implementation of a Kendo UI Grid.  Make sure you check out the additional resources below the video for more information on the Chrome Developer Tools.
