DNRTV Screencast - ASP.NET Debugging and Tracing

Last week during lunch one day, Carl and  I recorded an episode of "DotNetRocks TV." This is  Episode 66 of DNRTV. 

We started with the idea that we'd do a show on debugging ASP.NET, but once we got into System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine, I realized that I first needed to cover the relationship between Diagnostics.Trace and Page.Trace, as well as the relationships between debug statements and trace statements inside and outside of ASP.NET. The whole show was spontaneous, no script, no plan, but it turned out pretty darn good for a single take, if I may say so.

Download Torrent to Zip

Be aware if you download the ZIP that it's about 200megs. The show is in two parts, so there's an advertisement in the middle of the show...after that advert, Part 2 will automatically start. I encourage you to check it out the ad, first because it's telerik and they sincerely rock, and second because our sponsors pay for the massive bandwidth bills for the direct downloads. 

If you like DNRTV, and want to subscribe to the DNRTV Feed, consider using the RSS Downloader features of µTorrent ("microtorrent").

I hope you enjoy the show.

Great screencast Scott!

I've never heard of some of those tools that you were using. Always a good thing to have those utilities available in the toolbox. Excellent show, brilliant content!

Great stuff. I wish you did this show 2 years ago. DebugView - awesome and so infinitely useful. Baretail - absolutely great, i was actually thinking of writing something like that. Both are going into my toolbox. You definitely need to do parts II and III.

This is wonderful! I'd love to see you delve into debugging a Com Interop project that used regular ASP to communicate to a VB Com layer that then communicates to custom VB.Net classes installed in the Gac. As someone supporting such an app I find debugging it to be a nightmare, with breakpoints in asp never hitting because of no symbols, etc etc.

This is undoubtedly a stupid question but before I go out and buy an iPod Video, are these dnrTV videos for the most part compatible with the video iPod? Thanks for any enlightenment!
