As a nerd (or geek, if you prefer), you're interested in leveraging the latest and greatest. But sometimes applications can hold you back! How can you help? In this demo-heavy session, come join "The App Compat Guy" Chris Jackson as he presents a tried and tested approach to troubleshooting failing applications, and then use this approach to interactively troubleshoot several real-world applications. Whether you are interested in Windows or Web applications, we will give you tools and techniques for resolving issues more quickly, so you can retire those old platforms sooner. Note: This session is designed for nerds/geeks who are interested in troubleshooting and remediating failing applications. If you are interested in best practices for running an app compat project, you should attend App Compat for Humans instead.
