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.
Using the new tools included in the Windows Phone 8.1 SDK, it is easier than ever to create apps that share most of their code. Code can be shared using the new shared app template in Visual Studio, as well as by creating Portable Class Libraries. This session walks through the development of a shared app, showing you where code can be shared and where it still makes sense to implement platform-specific features.
