System requirements and support options
In this lab, explore new performance and diagnostics tools in Visual Studio 2013 that help you build better apps. See the new Performance and Diagnostics hub, which makes it easy to find performance and diagnostics tools in one convenient location. Explore the Energy Consumption profiler, which enables developers to estimate how much power their app will cause the device to consume, and the XAML UI Responsiveness tool, which is focused on profiling the responsiveness of Windows Store apps implemented with XAML. See how enhancements to asynchronous debugging provide more information about the asynchronous sequence of calls. Also, see how Visual Studio expands its dump file analysis tools to help you find memory leaks, inefficient memory use, and unnecessary allocations.
