Chapter 11: Browser and Visual Studio Debugging

In the previous chapter, we looked at deploying ASP.NET Core applications to the two leading cloud providers: AWS and Azure. Both cloud providers have excellent support for managing the cloud from within Visual Studio. The chapter serves as an introduction to cloud computing, and we will cover cloud computing in more detail in Chapter 13, Cloud Native.

In this chapter, we'll look at how both the browser and Visual Studio help us to understand, as well as support, the development of our ASP.NET Core applications. Building software is complex and knowing how to use the tooling available, is essential for producing high-quality code. Fortunately, all leading browsers have built-in support for analyzing, debugging, and viewing web applications. As Visual Studio is the integrated development environment (IDE) that we have been using in most of our chapters, we will explore the capabilities you should be aware of when developing ASP...
