Developers need to see the overall design of their code to investigate issues, add new capabilities, on-board a new colleague, or improve the structure of their code. Code map is a tool in Visual Studio for doing just this. This video shows how code map can be used to visualize the design and architecture of a .NET application direct from code, highlighting some of the new features introduced in Visual Studio 2013 Update 3 and Visual Studio 2015.
Windows continues to innovate on its implementation of core operating system security. To achieve the conflicting goals of security and compatibility, it can be complex. How do you understand how it works? Join "The App Compat Guy" for a deep dive into the operating system internals where security decisions begin. This is an operating system internals session, and not a packaged software session.
Visual Studio 2013 has been a small jump in version number from 2012, but don't be fooled – from your first time using it you discover it is the little things that make a big impact in your day-to-day development friction. In this session, Colin Bowern highlights the little changes from getting started to optimizing your app that make this a worthy upgrade for your tool chain, no matter the type of application you build.
Optimization is very hard topic which requires deep understanding of how underline system works. While every app is unique in its implementation, there are common areas that might improve app performance and memory usage in general. This especially true when apps were updated from previous versions on Windows. In this session, Mickey MacDonald talks about these common areas, how to optimize, and how to plan for low memory and hardware constraints.
