It couldn't be a more suitable time to be a developer! Using today's bleeding edge innovations and tech, writing distributed applications which truly scale and handle high load should no longer difficult.
However, today's distributed application challenges still include the inability to migrate monolithic code to microservices architectures, the nearly impossible implementation of state handling and event-driven architectures in microservices-based applications and the limited runtime portability across clouds and edge.
Throughout this session, we will talk about the future of app development and deployment. Specifically, I will showcase DAPR, an event-driven, portable runtime for microservices development on cloud and edge which aims to solve all the challenges above and make the development of worry-free microservices-based applications a breeze.
Ever had production problems and found that you cannot debug to find the problem? Or that you need to find out where potential issues are coming from in your Azure cloud solution and you have no idea what is happening?
Your applications need to be instrumented with logging, tracing and metrics, so you can see what is going on where. In .NET Core logging and tracing are built into the framework. We will have a look at the differences between logging, tracing and instrumentation in general.
You will learn how to use .NET Core to implement logging and tracing with best practices, do semantic logging, work with logging factories, trace providers. Also, you will learn how to instrument using Application Insights and add W3C compliant tracing for correlation across cloud resources in a distributed application.
Finally, we will put everything together to see how your logs and traces can give a rich way to get insights into your applications and services running in the Azure cloud or container based solutions
