When a developer says they are debugging their code that really means they are doing some superficial looking in the debugger. Today’s debuggers are so much more powerful than most developers realize. With a little bit of training they can easily cut the 50% they spend debugging by 20%. That means more time spent on features that customers want, which means more revenue for the company. Even more important is learning how to deal with problems that occur in production. Very few developers know anything about the real tools used to quickly solve those production problems.

If you would like to learn more about debugging using Visual Studio and its amazing breakpoint capabilities, make sure to attend the free 1 hour webinar on May 6th, 2016, lead by John Robbins, the head of Wintellect’s Debugging Service and prolific author/speaker on all things related to debugging. If you want to take your debugging skills to the next level, make sure to attend his two-day virtual Mastering .NET Debugging class on May 24-25, 2016. Not only will you learn tons more about what the great tools in Visual Studio for debugging and performance tuning, you’ll learn the ninja tricks of production debugging with WinDBG and SOS so you can solve the hardest .NET problems in the world. We look forward to seeing you at both of these demo heavy sessions.

John Robbins is a cofounder of Wintellect, where he heads up the consulting and debugging services side of the business. He also travels the world teaching his Mastering .NET Debugging and Mastering Windows Debugging courses so that developers everywhere can learn the techniques he uses to solve the nastiest software problems known to man. As one of the world's recognized authorities on debugging, John takes an evil delight in finding and fixing impossible bugs in other people's programs.

John is based in Seattle, WA, where he lives with his wife, Pam, and the world-famous debugging cats, Chloe and Gracie. In addition to being the author of the books Debugging Microsoft .NET and Windows Applications (Microsoft Press 2003), Debugging Applications (Microsoft Press, 2000), and Debugging Microsoft .NET 2.0 Applications (Microsoft Press 2006), John is a contributing editor for MSDN Magazine, where he writes the Bugslayer column. He regularly speaks at conferences such as Devscovery, Tech-Ed, VSLive, and DevWeek.

Prior to founding Wintellect, John was one of the early engineers at NuMega Technologies (now Compuware NuMega), where he played key roles in designing, developing, and acting as project manager for some of the coolest C/C++, Visual Basic, and Java developers' tools on the market. The products that he worked on include BoundsChecker (versions 3, 4, and 5), TrueTime (versions 1.0 and 1.1), TrueCoverage (version 1.0), SoftICE (version 3.24) and TrueCoverage for Device Drivers (version 1.0). He was also the only developer at NuMega with a couch in his office.

Before he stumbled into software development in his late 20's, John was a paratrooper and Green Beret in the United States Army. Since he can no longer get adrenaline highs by jumping out of airplanes in the middle of the night onto unlit, postage-stamp-size drop zones carrying full combat loads, he is very happy to still be able to get out and hike up mountains under his own power
