In his spare time he codes, writes newsletters and cycles around the city.

At Microsoft BUILD today, the company announced a new framework, Vorlon, that helps developers debug remote devices running Javascript.

Vorlon is a Node.js application you run on your computer and uses a single line of code to connect to remote devices, like an iPhone or Android device, and show errors from the running application on your computer.

The idea is that you can quickly test and diagnose problems on multiple devices at the same time, from a single dashboard. The project is entirely open source and developers can start using it today.
