Session Abstract:

 

Visual Studio 2010 includes the ability to inject application feature and session monitoring as well as auto-expire behaviors post-compile (no programming). This new functionality is included as a standard component in the new Dotfuscator Community Edition (CE). Beginning with Visual Studio 2003, Dotfuscator CE HAD served as Microsoft’s answer for simple obfuscation; well, to borrow a phrase, 2010 isn’t your father’s Dotfuscator. This session will explain the new monitoring, auto-expiry, and anti-tamper capabilities included in Visual Studio 2010, describe common use cases, and provide additional resources to help jumpstart the incorporating application analytics into your development lifecycle.

 

Sebastian will be presenting live from the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA and joined by Terry Clancy, Business Development Manager at Microsoft. In addition to the content outlined above, this presentation will include information on the recently published CodePlex project to build your own application analytics repository and an upcoming Silverlight Analytics Framework announcement.
