Last week I released a new version of Dropthings, my open source AJAX portal, that shows many fancy Web 2.0 features and showcases extensive use of ASP.NET 3.5, Workflow Foundation, C# 3.0 new language features, custom ASP.NET AJAX extenders, many performance and scalability techniques. I have written a book on these topics as well.
The new version implements the following performance and scalability improvement techniques:
Here's how the new version looks:
Hope you like the new design and the performance and scalability techniques that can significantly boost your ASP.NET website's quality. I highly recommend these techniques for ASP.NET websites. These are easy to implement and makes a world of difference in speed and smoothness for ASP.NET websites.
I am thinking about making an ASP.NET MVC version of this portal using jQuery. Do you think it will be a hot area to explore?
