Is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut to open Developer Tools on on Google Chrome on a Mac?

Ctrl-Shift-J does it on Linux and Windows.

The default should be Command+Option+i (or Command+Option+j for the JavaScript console).

I think most Keyboard Shortcuts are listed in menus, when applicable.

Example image can often define your own custom keyboard shortcuts in OS X by going to System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse > Keyboard Shortcuts, then Adding a new shortcut that matches the name of the menu item you want to access. See full instructions at Apple Mac OS X 10.6 Help.

If needed, Apple Keyboard Symbols has a good rundown on which symbols match which modifier keys. Also, I always remember the ALT/Option key because it's symbol shows an 'alternate' path: ⌥
