Microsoft Application Insights for Visual Studio 2013 is a suite of tools designed to help teams derive key metrics from their applications. Users can see detailed information about usage, performance and availability of their ASP.NET websites and Windows apps.

In this talk we will see how to add Application Insights to new or existing Visual Studio 2013 projects. From there we can use the Microsoft Azure Service attached to these applications to send and receive telemetry data. Setting up web tests within the Azure service will also be shown. Finally, we will learn how to access and read the metrics displayed on the dashboard.
