Look Under the Hood Using Application Insights

With expert Mike Benkovich
Recorded on April 05, 2017

The software development lifecycle generally includes a few well-known phases: plan, code, build, and deliver. This cycle should repeat as feedback from customers is turned into new enhancements, feature fixes, and other backlog work. But is the feedback you are getting useful and complete? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to look under the hood of your application and learn more about how well it performed and how it was used by your customers? Join Mike Benkovich as he explores how to get started with Application Insights, an Azure-based analytics service used to capture usage, events, and other metrics about how your application runs.

Newsflash! ASP.NET Core Adds New Component Type

With expert Don Kiely
Recorded on March 23, 2017

It’s not uncommon for a website to have content repeated in various places throughout the site, whether it’s a list of most popular blog posts or a tag cloud that shows up in a sidebar on every page. The list of the ways that content can be repeated goes on and on, limited only by your creativity and passion about the DRY principle: don’t repeat yourself. Classic ASP.NET has long had a few ways to create and manage reusable user interface widgets, but with ASP.NET Core, there’s a new kid on the block: View Components. In this webinar, we'll explore what View Components are all about, how they completely replace child actions, and why they are a nice replacement for partial views in many cases.
