Accelerated Windows Postmortem Diagnostics and Debugging Logo

Registration for 8 2-hour sessions

(when you register you get all viewing links and materials within 24 hours)

This comprehensive training includes more than 40 step-by-step exercises and covers more than 85 crash dump analysis patterns from x86 and x64 process, kernel, and complete (physical) memory dumps. Learn how to analyze application (native and .NET Core), service, and system crashes and freezes, navigate through memory dump space (managed and unmanaged code) and diagnose corruption, memory and handle leaks, CPU spikes, blocked threads, deadlocks, wait chains, resource contention, and much more with WinDbg debugger. The training uses a unique and innovative pattern-oriented analysis approach developed by Software Diagnostics Institute to speed up the learning curve, and it is based on the latest edition of Accelerated Windows Memory Dump Analysis and Accelerated .NET Core Memory Dump Analysis books. It uses the latest WinDbg Preview and is optionally containerized.
