In today's world of complex applications, developers need a way to monitor their systems and diagnose problems when they arise. Structured logging makes it simple to trace an operation through your application, and if something goes wrong it can capture the conditions that led to the error. In the .NET ecosystem, Serilog is a well thought out structured logging library. Among many possible ways to store these structured logs, Seq stands out as a solid choice for its ease of storing, filtering, and alerting based on the information it receives. This presentation will cover structured logging basics, and demonstrate how utilizing Serilog in your .NET application along with Seq can help you diagnose and resolve problems faster.
