Remember Our New Location: 835 Market Street, Suite 700.
Building High performance ASP.NET web applications – In this meeting, Peter Kellner will present on and discuss techniques and methodologies for developing highly performant and scalable web sites.
Topics will include appropriate use of Cache and Session State, as well as how and when to use them. Viewstate management and methods to minimize its use will be discussed. Code to pop up a warning when a threshold is met in development will be shown. When and how to take advantage of Server Farms will be discussed, as well as trouble shooting techniques to find problems. The evils of Server Affinity, as well as a common pattern for caching database queries will be shown to be wrong. Time permitting, we will talk about using Microsoft’s Ajax.asp.net with UpdatePanel and webservices and how these affect performance and scalability.
