Visual Studio Online Application Insights solves the age-old problem of collecting enough data to enable developers to diagnose their issues but not so much as to impact production capacity. In this video, we'll focus on setting up Application Insights and Microsoft Monitoring Agent in connected scenarios. In these scenarios, Application Insights will monitor event data, analyze it for categories of issues, display (down to the specific line of code) the source of the issue, monitor memory usage for leak detection and output memory snapshots and IntelliTrace logs that can be analyzed using Visual Studio 2013.
Authentication and Authorisation can be tricky, with many different methods of performing similar tasks and it can be hard to figure out what's best for your projects. It gets even trickier when you start thinking about how to authorise cross platform applications including web and apps (and now with Xamarin thrown in, it's even murkier!). Throw in WebAPI2 on the other side and it's starting to become unclear how to make a great experience for developers and end users alike. In this session Jordan will demonstrate how to build a centralised authentication system that supports web and apps, passing claims around all over the place using Json Web Tokens ending up in a WebAPI2 based API site. The session will investigate a range of concepts from web to app to API, including best practices, Autofac powered filters, OWIN and other cool concepts that your services need!
