It’s a common problem: you’re getting close to when you’re supposed to deploy your new Microsoft ASP.NET or Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) application into production and somehow it just doesn’t seem very fast. Or maybe you’ve deployed your application into production and now you’re getting complaints from customers that it’s just plain crazy-slow. Yikes! You’ve got performance problems. Thankfully, Visual Studio 2010 has some great features to help out of this bind. This session begins with a running application with performance problems and shows you how to find and fix these performance problems using Web Performance Tests, Load Tests, Unit Tests, Performance Explorer and code profiling. Along the way, we discuss what a Load Test Rig is, how to set up a Load Test Rig, and how Micrsooft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server can help you to catch performance issues *before* they become problems.
