What You Should Know About Your Application: An Introduction to Application Insights

Collecting telemetry for applications is essential in building scalable, secure, and configurable solutions for our business needs. Application Insights is an almost-free solution provided by Microsoft to manage apps allowing you to monitor your application live, detect performance anomalies, and observe these changes with powerful analytics tools. In this session, you will get an introduction into Application Insights, demos on how to utilize it against existing applications, and show the ease adding it for new applications. Finally, there will be a demo of the Snapshot Debugger which allows stack trace debugging of exceptions deployed to Azure from within Visual Studio without affecting your Production App. Developers with an interest or experience in Azure are perfect for this presentation.
