Speakers: Alan Cobb

This session will survey a range of Silverlight 2 debugging tools and techniques. At the beginner level we’ll review setting up VS2008 for debugging Silverlight C# and JavaScript code. Then we’ll look at different techniques for trace logging. At an intermediate level we’ll cover three debugging tools I use extensively: Fiddler, Silverlight Spy and NetLimiter. At the advanced level we’ll do some low-level Silverlight .NET debugging with WinDbg and the SOS debugger extension DLL. SOS helps you hunt for memory leaks by giving you a detailed view of the managed heap. Stack traces from SOS can sometimes reveal more about the context of bugs than VS2008 can.
