At my Mix talk one of the things I got asked about was the development experience for writing Javascript.  While we are doing some great stuff in Orcas to make that better, it is actually surprisingly good with VS2005 and Atlas... if you just know where to look...

This doc covers how to setup IE and Firefox for a great development experience... shows you the right knobs to turn in VS to attach to an Atlas app running in the browser and debug it.  It also covers the know issues and workarounds for stuff that is less than ideal today.  And of course it talks about my favorite “printf-style debugging” technique debug.trace(). 

 

Enjoy!

 

Oh, and do let us know if you have other Javascript debugging tips we should add...
