This One Goes Up To 11, or How To Write Scalable ASP.NET

Phil Pursglove will discuss his hot tips for writing scalable Web applications.

So you've written the new MySpace and it's getting lots of use - but the more users you get, the s-l-o-w-e-r the whole thing runs.

In this session we'll discuss strategies, hints and tips that you can use to write ASP.NET that scales effectively as your user base grows.

This will include: - how to cache HTML output so your page doesn't have to render every time. - how to cache data so you don't have to get it from the database every time. - how to reduce your Viewstate to a few bytes in just three lines of code. - how to shrink your JavaScript so it gets to the client faster. - why letting the GridView do its' own paging is a bad idea. - an introduction to Project Velocity, Microsoft's new caching engine.
