Visual Studio tips and tricks
The more you work in Visual Studio, the more important it to be really good at it. This talk covers an array of tricks that are unknown or underutilized. You’ll get comfortable with RegEx Find and Replace, be more effective with Find in Files, embrace the Diagnostic Tools, make peace with Code Lens, get in the groove of column replacements, leverage breakpoints, put a stake in the heart of Debug.WriteLine() debugging, and yes there’s even more! Although a few of these features don’t make sense alongside ReSharper, most still work really well in that world. Take away solid tricks that will shave a few minutes of your everyday routines!
Kathleen loves to code and loves to talk about code. Along the way she’s been an architect, a manager, a teacher, a writer, a speaker, and hopefully still a fun person! She’s written tons of articles, a book, and spoken at many conferences around the world. She’s the Director of Engineering at ROI Code, and has videos in both the Pluralsight and Wintellect libraries. @KathleenDollard
