In other news, I'm happy to finally bring the seminar Debugging in Visual Studio to the masses. I've been excited about this seminar from the day it was proposed to me - who doesn't see debugging at first as intimidating? Digging through all that code, breakpoints, watch windows, memory leaks... ahhhh!!! :P Well Steve Jones has put together a fabulous presentation covering all the angles:
When writing software even the most experienced coder will create errors in the program. You want to be able to find and fix errors as quickly as possible. It would even be beneficial to do it during the development phase rather than waiting until later. Code syntax errors are easy to find because most of the time the compiler tells you what and where they are so you can fix them easily. But what about logical errors? How do you track down and fix errors that compile but aren't apparent yet until you run your program? Is there a better way to do it instead of using just log files and printfs all over your program? Well there is and we will explore what the latest versions of Visual Studio provide for us.
Any developer with little or no experience working with the Visual Studio debugger.
