In this episode, Robert is joined by Andrew Hall. Andrew shows us the new Performance and Diagnostics hub in Visual Studio 2013, which makes it easy to find performance and diagnostics tools in one convenient location. He demos 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.
