comments to make them more maintainable. Believe it or not, it all adds up substantially

There are a lot of articles explaining the basics in performance optimization in ASP.NET. Here
is one and here
is another. It is important to know the basics and use them where appropriate.
The basics include caching, viewstate optimization etc. But what do you do to optimize
further, when you have implemented all the basic techniques? You search the Internet
to find an article about it, just like this one. The conclusion of this article is: Make the response from the ser... [More]* $4.95/month ASP.NET Hosting with FREE SQL 2012 DB! – Click Here!

A couple of colleagues and I talked about how unpleasant surprises could be avoided
if you use the time needed to research the task before actually starting to work on
it. It turned out, we all did it in our own distinct way, but the end results were
the same. I, for instance, use scenarios as my primary tool for scoping a task. Some
uses a more theoretic approach and some googles for the answer first and asks the
questions later. These are all valid approaches in my opinion.... [More]* $4.95/month ASP.NET Hosting with FREE SQL 2012 DB! – Click Here!

Over time, a database becomes fragmented when it is used. This makes it grow in size
and perform badly. Not the two qualities you want for your mission-critical data.
Luckily, a lot of databases such as MS SQL Server and Oracle can compact it self, or at least have an interface for compacting so you can do it manually if you choose
Microsoft Access also has this feature called “Compact and repair”. However, this
function can only be called from within t... [More]* $4.95/month ASP.NET Hosting with FREE SQL 2012 DB! – Click Here!

I recently build a web application that would let visitors add calendar items to their
calendar program like Outlook or windows mobile smartphone, just by clicking a link
and download the vCalendar item. vCalendar is a standard format for calendar items
and is used widely across the industry by most calendar programs and tools. It is
actually a simple text file, so it is not hard to create them dynamically. This is
an example of a method in VB.NET that converts an ASP.NET pag... [More]* $4.95/month ASP.NET Hosting with FREE SQL 2012 DB! – Click Here!

In a normal webpage there is a lot of whitespace. We put it there in form of tabs
and carriage-returns in order to make the document more maintainable and easier to
read. But it has its price in terms of adding to the overall weight of the document
in kilobytes and it takes longer for the browser to render a page with a lot of whitespace.
This is especially true for IE6, which renders whitespace a lot slower than its counterparts.
The problem is, we don’t want to write ht... [More]* $4.95/month ASP.NET Hosting with FREE SQL 2012 DB! – Click Here!

What happened to that fantastic little tool that would find your memory screw-ups
in a nice and friendly manor? I have been looking for a profiler for .NET 2.0
for the past year or so, when Visual Studio 2005 was still in beta, but haven't been
successfull. I know that companies like Compuware
make one, but they are rather expensive and in contrast to the good
old .NET Profiler which was free, they are very expensive.

<quote> AJAX is the most promising and coolest thing happening in the web world at the
moment – a part of the web 2.0 movement! </quote>
If you read any web 2.0 blogs it seems that IT IS the web 2.0 movement. Anyway, it
represents a paradox in my opinion.
Suddenly the AJAX wave comes sweeping from behind and now anybody who is anybody must
implement it in some way, not to fall behind the hype of course. The tools are coming

For those of you who tried the beta 1 release, you would agree that a lot has happened
since then. The design has improved, the RSS aggregator feature has improved along
with a lot of things. The tabbed browsing also works much better; in fact, they work
better than they do in Firefox. For a full review of IE7 beta 2 check Paul Thurrot’s
