If you missed my tweet yesterday afternoon, I thought I'd share my slides from my 'Designing for WordPress and Web Design' presentation, so if anyone wants to check them out here they are:
I welcome any questions, suggestions or feedback :)
Thanks for being such a nice group to present to!

Comments on the debugging aspect.
Someone (Ngaire?) asked if you should try and eliminate all of the warnings and notices from your site's code. I would recommend doing so, the reason is that they can knobble ajax code, and as James mentioned they can hamper debugging other issues. Wordpress also puts out it's own notices in the form of indicating depreciated API calls which you can checkout with the Log Depreciated Notices plugin.
For debugging I'm currently using "Developer monitor by VentureGeeks" it works differently from the debug toolbar in that it passes all of the info back to the browser console (firebug, inspect etc). Internally it's using FirePHP which is definately a tool to investigate if you need to debug ajax code.
Theme check and Plugin check plugins also do some Wordpress specific checks so you can ensure your theme/plugin is behaving nicely even if you don't plan to release it to the Wordpress directory

Most of it over my head but I listened intently to the well presented talk. I noticed that "Code Staring," my default method, was not covered as a debugging tool. The other subject: much more familiar territory here. Nicely delivered and interesting stuff on design principles.
