Mobile exception monitoring and analytics in Visual Studio 11
Last December, at the ALM Summit in Redmond, WA, Microsoft disclosed that Visual Studio 11 will include an application analytics and incident monitoring solution. While the functionality works across all .NET frameworks, it has specific support for WP7 (Mango) and Windows Azure providing a unique view into the “whole mobile application,” not just the bits running locally on any given device. This session will introduce the components included inside Visual Studio 11 and demonstrate the steps required to instrument distributed mobile applications and integrate them into your development process leveraging automated, rule-driven work item generation within TFS. To view Microsoft’s ALM Summit presentation where this topic was first publically disclosed, visit Continuous Feedback on Channel 9. For a more detailed demonstration recorded the next day on campus by the same Microsoft presenter, Justin Marks, TFS Program Manager, visit A Lap Around PreEmptive Analytics for TFS with Justin Marks.
- Learn how to instrument WP7 application to capture and report on exceptions in near real-time (in seconds, not minutes, hours or days).
- Define basic rules inside TFS to intelligently automate the creation of TFS work items.
- Understand how to correlate exceptions across mobile and cloud platforms to better manage quality across applications with components running on multiple surfaces and runtimes.
- How to implement these same features today on VS2010 using commercially available components.
