On March 3rd, Greg Sohl will talk about symbol file usage and management for .NET applications.
Topic: A Great Clash of Symbols
We all use symbol files for debugging. They are built by default every time we compile in DEBUG mode. In this session we’ll look at managing symbol files and related source for builds so that they are available for later debugging, dump analysis or use with Intellitrace. We’ll explore various options for storing and retrieving them. We’ll see how Visual Studio searches for them and the requirements for using them. Packaging symbols with NuGet will also be looked at.
Greg is a software architect with StoneRiver in Cedar Rapids. He’s spent the last 30+ years building commercially sold software in the financial industry. Greg is the Speaker Liason for CRineta and President of Iowa Code Camp. (@gregsohl / http://cwi-websoft.com/blog)
