  • ASP.NET Wish List

    I’m at the MVP Summit this week in Seattle and one of the things this provides an opportunity for is providing feedback to the product teams.  I certainly have plenty of ideas of my own for new features I’ve been longing to see in ASP.NET, as well as fixes for some annoyances.  If you have ASP.NET feature requests of your ...

  • Real World Application Performance Tuning Example

    Many of you know that I’m very much into high performance and scalability techniques.  One thing you need to remember when applying performance tweaks is that as your application changes, your performance optimizations may need to change and evolve with it.  Let me demonstrate this with a case in point. On ASPAlliance.com, a ...

  • DevConnections Fall 2006 Summary

    Got back home last night from DevConnections in Las Vegas.  It was a very good show this year in terms of content, products being launched, and numbers of attendees and exhibitors.  I think I had more people in my sessions than usual, too, and they all went well (i.e. the demos worked, nobody threw tomatoes at me). The keynote on Monday ...

  • SqlDependency Issue Resolved

    I’m doublechecking my demos for my sessions at DevConnections this week and I think I finally fixed an issue that has plagued me off and on for the last year or more when I’ve been demonstrating the new SQL 2005 SqlDependency features.  It seems like almost half the time, the notifications don’t work when it’s time for ...

  • Caching in O/R Mappers and Data Layers

    Frans Bouma, creator of LLBLGen, MVP, and all around very smart guy, wrote yesterday about the ‘myth’ that caching inside an Object-Relational (O/R) mapper makes queries run faster or makes the O/R mapper more efficient.  I think he’s missing a few key usage scenarios (and, what’s more, I think he generally has a ...

  • New Caching Video

    I recored a quick video demonstrating the effects of a very short duration cache on a page that’s hitting the database more than 1/second (microcaching).  This is one of my favorite demos when I give my caching presentations – I believe I first saw Rob Howard do pretty much the same demo quite a few years ago so credit goes to him ...

  • Caching Birds of a Feather

    I hosted a Caching Best Practices Birds of a Feather today at Tech Ed.  The attendance was not quite as great as I’d hoped but wasn’t terrible - about 15–20 people came.  Overall I think it went reasonably well, with a number of people having questions and plenty of others with good experience to share.  I talked ...

  • Caching Domain Objects Article

    My DotNetSlackers news pointed me to this article on Domain Objects Caching Pattern in .NET.  This is actually a pretty good article on caching best practices, but I did want to take exception to one statement that is clearly in error: And, your options are ASP.NET Cache, Caching Application Block in Microsoft Enterprise Library, or some ...
