Format: Paperback
Term "ASP.NET performance" returns more than 60,000 results on Google search. If you need to learn how to develop fast ASP.NET websites, it's easy to get lost in the ocean of articles, instructions, and blogs. ASP.NET Performance Secrets makes this task much easier.

The book is not just a collection of tips and secrets; it rather describes a systematic approach to optimizing websites. Book content is a workflow of the optimization process. It lists the areas that performance-minded developers need to bear in mind to improve speed of webpages.

It starts from diagnostic, then goes into areas such as optimizing memory, CPU, caching, and reducing time to first and last byte, and then covers more advanced topics such as threading and load testing. It also describes techniques helpful to keep any websites fast (not only ASP.net) such as optimizing javascript, images, database and compression.

While beginners may want to read the entire book as a practical guide, it also can be used as a reference book. It is well organized and every chapter can be read independently. I keep this book handy and return to the chapters that I need for particular projects.

When I first got this book I thought it was going to be a compilation of tips and tricks. I was quite surprised with the fact that it really wasn't. The author starts out by telling you how you to determine the bottlenecks in your site then goes into a lot of samples on how to correct and / or improve them. He covers memory, CPU, caching, compression and more.

This book is definitely worth a read then a reread every once in a while. I plan on implementing some of the suggestions for my sites.

There are few ASP.NET Performance books out there and even fewer good ones.

This one I like. Matt Perdick has taken an interesting approach by not just presenting technology tips and tricks that can be used to positively effect performance but rather presents the technologies in the context of a methodology one can use to identify and resolve performance problems in their own web applications.

Matt covers the tools you can use with the bottleneck pinpointing process to find and fix issues with :

*Time to First Byte
*Memory Usage
*CPU Consumption
*Caching
*Browser
*Proxy
*Output
*IIS Output
*Data
*Thread usage and Asynchronous Architectures
*Reducing Long Wait Times
*Database Access
*Time to Last Byte
*Compression
*Forms Optimization
*JavaScript and CSS
*Images
*Load Testing

It's easy to read with ample code samples and screenshots and contains many, many of the kind of tips you would expect concerning things like ASP.NET View State, Element Ids, working with User Agent specifics, etc.

A good addition to your ASP.NET Expertise.

Many of the SQL tuning tips apply to any sort of application that runs on SQL Server. What's more the author makes it easy for regular software developers to understand especially in regards to index creation.
