Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability

I’m working on an expenditure system at the moment and as we’re adding more and more code, my concern for application performance rises.  When it becomes noticeable that operations in your application are slowing down, it’s time to look at fine tuning a few things.  Over the weekend I went ‘googlin’g for some resources, tips and best practices for optimizing application performance and came across this old, but in a broad sense still relevant document published by Microsoft in 2004 called ‘Improving .NET Application Performance and Scalability’.

I’m still to read the whole PDF, but from flicking through it, it does appears to cover topics that are still applicable in applications now, although it does refer specifically to .NET 2.0 and back to .NET 1.1. Hopefully this will benefit you also in some way if you are also on the hunt to streamline your applications for better operation and scalability.

The document can be downloaded from Microsoft’s Download Centre.
