Topic: Hardcore ASP.NET 2.0

Lecturer: Dan Amiga

 This session is all about really understanding the internals of ASP.NET 2.0 and cruising it’s (highly usable) dark corners.

I’ve carefully selected the topics to suit all developers so that even if you are not inheriting from System.Web.UI.Page all day you’d be very interested in how you can leverage

ASP.NET 2.0 to answer non functional system requirements such as: scaling, concurrency, session handling, monitoring, hosting, design time behavior and much more.

These are the topics too deep to cover in class:

·         ISAPI Filters & Extensions. IIS 7 and ISAPI

·         System.Web.Hosting, HttpRuntime, HttpApplicationFactory,PageHandlerFactory,IHttpHandlerFactory and the multi threaded pipeline.

·         PreCompilation,  Dynamic compilation and  no compilation..

·         BuildProviders and ExpressionBuilders

·         Utilizing Completion and Worker threads to achieve asynchronous page execution.

·         Caching internals – synchronization, HttpCachePolicy and the famous SqlCacheDependency

·         Session state internals – readonly state, read/write state, and the state provider to boost performance.

·         Viewstate and ControlState Internals - LosFormatter and the ObjectStateFormatter

·         Custom controls internals – Control&Template Attributes, composition, callbacks (simple, atlas), web resources, adaptive rendering and design time behavior.

·         Health monitoring through WebEvents and smart exception handling
