Logging for Fun and Profit
Wednesday, March 26th, 2014
6:30 - 8:30 PM
Logging what is taking place in your application provides important insights into applications at runtime, and can be extremely helpful to support analysts when something goes wrong.
We'll discuss best practices about what, why, and how to log and what to avoid when logging, as well as where write your logs and how to decide what logging framework to use. Time permitting, we'll talk about log analysis tools to help make sense of large log files as well.
