Video: Send Your Debugger Back In Time With Visual Studio Intellitrace


Wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to reproduce a problem to debug it?  In this video excerpt from Kate Gregory’s course Introduction to Visual Studio 2010 Part 2 you’ll see how to use Intellitrace to debug past executions to track down an intermittent bug and terminate it with extreme prejudice.  In the complete course Kate also covers topics like advanced debugging, working with designers, and extending Visual Studio.


Kate is the author of over a dozen books and speaks at DevTeach, TechEd (USA, Europe, Africa), and TechDays, among others. Kate is a C++ MVP and a member of adjunct faculty at Trent University in Peterborough. Since January 2002 she has been Microsoft Regional Director for Toronto and in June 2005 she won the Regional Director of the year award.  In February 2011 she was designated Visual C++ MVP of the year for 2010.
