But It was Logged! Practical Logging & Monitoring with .NET Core

Link visible for attendees

.NET Core makes writing log entries a breeze within your applications, however, that is where the out-of-the-box simplicity ends. So you have decorated your code with all of these pretty log messages that are designed to make your life easier, but then what? Have you actually reviewed them? Something bad happened, did it tell you? What about confidential information, have you limited that from being logged?

Well, this session is designed to help take your logging from ***IMPLEMENTED*** to ***USABLE***. Logging is great, but we have so many questions to answer, including where you store the logs, how you get notifications etc. In this code-focused solution, we explore the following concepts, with detailed examples.

* Where to log entries to, and flexible configurations
* Monitoring and escalation of log entries
* Integration with logging & external assemblies
* Configuration & build systems with logging

At the end of the session, attendees should be able to work with logging and exception handling in .NET Core effectively.

So far you would have known of Uno Platform for its unique UI capabilities – enabling C# and XAML single-codebase apps to run on Web, iOS, Android, macOS, Windows and Linux.

But now the open-source Uno Platform also brings a plethora of new capabilities such as:

  • Figma plugin – for one-click XAML generation from Figma designs
  • Extensions – for bootstrapping your apps faster
  • Toolkit – for common cross-platform controls such as Navigation Bar or TabBar
  • VS Code Plugin – for Intellisense-like experience for XAML and C# completion, Hot Reload and more

In this session we will cover some of the Uno Platform fundamentals and then provide a deep dive on all additional Uno Platform capabilities that came in the 4.0 wave.
