Application Insights

• What we’ll do
Application Insights is a language agnostic Azure Service that takes care the health management and monitoring of various cloud and on premises applications.

More specifically it can be used to find run time exceptions or diagnose performance issues. Another really powerful feature is to monitor the health of the application and configure several alerts. One of the less well known features is the ability to analyze the usage of our web applications.

During the presentation we will try to demonstrate a basic set up of the framework in a .net core application and explore the integration with Visual Studio when debugging locally. Next step is to see the integration with Azure portal and the very powerful query language the platform provides.

Lastly if time permits we will investigate the analytics capabilities to get a better insight of how our users interact with our application.
