All Your Log R Belong 2 Us! Logging with NLog

June 09, 2016

  • J Sawyer

Logging. Just the very word often brings fear, dread and loathing to even the most hardened developer. It's tedious, boring stuff ... but absolutely essentially to building maintainable and supportable solutions. Yet it often goes undone simply because it's so boring and tedious. But it doesn't have to be that way. In this talk, we'll look at how NLog can help ease your logging pain by providing a flexible, configurable and highly performant logging infrastructure. We'll also touch (just a little) on how you can extend NLog to meet your custom requirements.

About J Sawyer

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an English Lit major was offered some beer money to write a small database application. And so it started. Now, twenty-some-odd years later, this same guy is still writing code and loving every minute of it. Now a Senior Architect with Hitachi Consulting, he builds all kinds of applications for customers large and small. When he's not coding (and it's not raining), he rides his Kawasaki Concours 14, hangs out with his family and sometimes even plays computer games. He's also the President of the Houston .Net User's Group, one of the oldest .Net-only user groups in the country, if not the world.
