If you have never had dinner at La Porta Rossa you are in for a surprise and a delicious treat! Prepare your taste buds and hang around after the meeting to socialize and enjoy the best food experience that Central Florida has to offer! The dinner menu is awesome; get a babysitter because you will want to bring your significant other who can socialize with non-developers in the geek-free zone during the presentation (they are welcome to hear the presentation if interested).
And for those of us who want to geek out you will learn about Improving Web Site Performance and Scalability while Saving Money, and Fiddler and Your Website from a widely recognized expert. Robert Boedigheimer has been an ASP.NET MVP for the past five years and speaks nationally and internationally on ASP.NET and other web related topics like HTML5, CSS3, IIS, JQuery, and more. The slide deck and handouts for the presenation can be found here.
Fiddler and Your Website
Fiddler is a great free tool for monitoring HTTP traffic between clients and web servers. It is very helpful for troubleshooting web sites and for gauging performance. Review the basic features and explore advanced techniques for tracing traffic with remote devices.
Improving Web Site Performance and Scalability While Saving Money
Can you really improve the customer experience and save money? There are many simple techniques and free tools available that can do both! This session will 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.
- Take advantage of free CDN networks to host jQuery and Ajax files. See how tools such as Fiddler, Network Monitor, and Google Page speed can be used to help diagnose and verify improvements.
- Be the hero in tight economic times, doing the impossible by using these simple techniques to cut costs and make your customers happy!
