Insightful Logging with Azure Application Insights

This talk will start with a general discussion of application logging in .NET. We'll then transition to discussion of the new ILogger interface and delve into structured logging, what is and why it's useful.

I'll then spend the remainder of the presentation showing off Azure Application Insights with a bunch of demos and sample code. You'll see things like the custom query language to mine your collected data. I'll also demo the Application map feature along with the built-in performance and failure views. I'll demo the Live Metrics view, which is incredibly useful when performance testing or just debuggin your application. If we have time, I'll demo the snapshot debugging feature as well, which is very useful for troubleshooting exceptions in production.
