It's a common problem: you're getting close to when you're supposed to deploy your new ASP.NET or WCF application in to production and somehow it just doesn't seem very fast.  Or maybe you've deployed your application in to production and now you're getting complaints from customers that it's just plain crazy-slow. 

Yikes!  You've got performance problems.  Thankfully, Visual Studio 2010 has some great features to help out of this bind.  

In this session, Ben will start out with a running web application with performance problems and show you how to find and fix these performance problems using Web Performance Tests, Load Tests, Unit Tests, Performance Explorer and code profiling.  Along the way, Ben will discuss what a Load Test Rig is, how to set up a Load Test Rig, and how Team Foundation Server can help you to catch performance issues *before* they become problems.

You will learn:
• When you have an underperforming app, how do you find problems related to load?
• What are the core features of Web Performance Testing and Load Testing in Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate?
• How do you use the Code Profiling tools to identify performance
