Watch the Diagnostics Sessions From //Build and Ignite

The diagnostics team delivered a total of five talks at Microsoft’s //Build and Ignite conferences. If you were unable to view or attend them here are the links to watch them now!

Note: If you are interested in watching one of the talks, all talks that share a title use the same demos and cover similar content, where the shorter talks are simply more selective about which features they show.

Debugging Tips and Tricks for .NET Developers with Microsoft Visual Studio 2015

Every software developer has the need to debug problems in code, but we are rarely taught how to use the debugging tools available to us. Watch this demo-driven session where we’ll learn how to make the most of the debugger to find bugs faster. We’ll tour most of the debugger, throwing in tips and tricks as we go along, with a special focus on brand new enhancements in Visual Studio 2015. Whatever your experience level we guarantee you’ll learn something new. For more details see the blog post that covers many of the features highlighted in the talks.


Historical Debugging with IntelliTrace in Visual Studio 2015

Watch this all-demo session to learn how IntelliTrace in Visual Studio helps you minimize wasted time while debugging .NET applications. We’ll look at IntelliTrace’s ability to take the debugger back in time and examine the state of the application at interesting points in the past—all in the context of the new Visual Studio 2015 IntelliTrace experience. To learn more, see the “Use IntelliTrace to Diagnose Issues Faster” article in MSDN magazine.


Debugging Performance Issues using Visual Studio 2015

Every application has performance requirements that must be satisfied. In many cases the speed of the computer seems good enough. In other cases you don’t notice problems until your customers report them. Watch this demo-driven session to learn how to use Visual Studio 2015 to continuously improve the performance of your applications during normal development. You’ll learn how to use the new capability of running diagnostic tools with the debugger and how to use the tools without the debugger to both prevent and diagnose a broad range of performance issues. We also recommend reading the “Analyze Performance While Debugging in Visual Studio 2015” article in MSDN magazine.
