How to kill a bug without touching it

Philip Sutton Philip Sutton

Many times when debugging the F10 and F11 keys get worked overtime, and maybe the occasional breakpoint. However Visual Studio has many functions to help with debugging. In this talk I will go through the debugging features from basic breakpoints to thread and processes windows, showing how these can be used to speed up the beginning, by getting quickly to the problem code. My talk will include:-

  • Breaking on exceptions

  • Breakpoints and tracepoints

  • Debugging multithread/parallel applications

  • Watch window

  • Customising debugging information

  • Symbol Server
