Use Windows debuggers throughout the development cycle—and build better software

Rethink your use of Windows debugging and tracing tools—and learn how to make them a key part of test-driven software development. Led by a member of the Windows Fundamentals Team at Microsoft, you’ll apply expert debugging and tracing techniques—and sharpen your C++ and C# code analysis skills—through practical examples and common scenarios. Learn why experienced developers use debuggers in every step of the development process, and not just when bugs appear.

Discover how to:

  • Go behind the scenes to examine how powerful Windows debuggers work
  • Catch bugs early in the development cycle with static and runtime analysis tools
  • Gain practical strategies to tackle the most common code defects
  • Apply expert tricks to handle user-mode and kernel-mode debugging tasks
  • Implement postmortem techniques such as JIT and dump debugging
  • Debug the concurrency and security aspects of your software
  • Use debuggers to analyze interactions between your code and the operating system
  • Analyze software behavior with Xperf and the Event Tracing for Windows (ETW) framework
