Play VSX202: Best Practices for Extending the IDE with a Focus on Performance
With Visual Studio 2010, creating extensions has never been easier! In this presentation, I will discuss and demonstrate the benefits of leveraging new Visual Studio technologies such as WPF and MEF, and will show how to optimize performance for your extensions. The talk will cover extensibility best practices with a focus on performance such as keeping your UI responsive, how you can be frugal with resources, and how to lazy-load your extension. Finally, I will show you how to debug those pesky errors that appear during extension development and how to avoid them in the future.
