In the session, Robert covered:

  • Start with a traditional ASP.NET web site and show step by step how to improve it for both client experience and cost savings.
  • Review the basics of caching and learn how to avoid costly server round trips by using expirations to maximize use of the client's browser and also reduce server side execution time with data caching on the server.
  • Use HTTP compression, minification of JavaScript and CSS, server side viewstate, and image optimization to reduce client downloads by 50-75%.
  • Take advantage of free CDN networks to host jQuery and Ajax files.
  • See how tools such as Ajax Minifier, Fiddler, Network Monitor, and Google Page speed can be used to help diagnose and verify improvements.
