  • 1. Logging and why it’s the shit.
  • 2. You are going to love logging!
  • 3. Ever had to debug a live issue and had no information to go on?

  • 14. Warn
  • 15. Something suspicious has happened from which we have recovered but... if this happens a lot, we need to investigate
  • 16. _log.WarnFormat( "User {0} tried to hack our servers", user.Id );
