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.  Use HTTP compression, minification of JavaScript and CSS, and image optimization to reduce client downloads by 50-75%.  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!
