The Visual Studio profiler is an excellent tool with millions of options that produces tons of data. If you’ve had limited experience with the profiler, you can quickly get overwhelmed with data and end up in analysis paralysis. This session cuts through everything so you can concentrate on the most important part of the profiler, finding your performance problems. In here, you’ll learn the trick to finding all algorithmic as well as memory performance issues. You’ll also learn to deal with the new issues around PDB files in Windows 8 and Server 2012. Even if you’ve used the profiler before, we highly recommend you watch this session.
