Avoid 10 ASP.NET Pitfalls

Jeff Prosise, renowned author/trainer and co-founder of Wintellect, has written an article in the July issue of MSDN Magazine (also available online) outlining 10 common pitfalls ASP.NET developers fall prey to.  This article is a must-read for ASP.NET developers.  Jeff's suggestions range from performance tips, to techniques to avoid obscure errors that could cost days or weeks of debugging time, to database profiling.

Topics include:
  • LoadControl and Output Caching
  • Sessions and Output Caching
  • Forms Authentication Ticket Lifetime
  • View State: The Silent Perf Killer
  • SQL Server Session State: Another Perf Killer
  • Uncached Roles
  • Profile Property Serialization
  • Thread Pool Saturation
  • Impersonation and ACL Authorization
  • Don’t Just Trust It—Profile Your Database!
These topics came from consulting experience troubleshooting production apps with a variety of development teams, and the article includes anecdotes on how the teams learned these lessons, and along the way increased their performance, scalabilty, and security.  Don't just settle for an out-of-the-box ASP.NET application, dig a little deeper to learn more about ViewState, Caching, and Personalization to take your application to the next level!
