In today’s world of multitasking and getting tasks completed faster and on or before time, it is very important for the developed software and apps to be very agile and robust in all terms.
Not only that, but it must also be dynamic, must have architecturally simplified design and framework, and be stable across all platforms.
And so, .NET provides a suitable and easily configurable platform that can cater to all the aforesaid needs. But there are certain things which must be done and/or kept in mind so that the developed app based on .NET platform reaps the desired result and does justice to the valuable time, capital, and other associated resources put to use behind the cause.
Thus, enlisted below are ways in which one can easily accelerate one’s .NET Application Development.
1. App Caching
Caching plays an important role in accelerating the .NET application development.
One can easily implement application caching while making a database call to retrieve records so that if the website uses the cache feature, it can thereby easily download and save the data in the cache when requested for the first time.
Thus, the existing data will be processed at a much faster pace upon being requested the next time as it won’t involve any downloading of the data but the mere recollection of it from its store.
2. Optimization of Images
Especially on blog-based web platforms, images are not only the most essential elements but it is also undeniably true that they consume a huge part of the current memory. In such cases, one can optimize the images or any such content so that the web page(s) can load faster at a given speed.
One can use .NET supported add-ons such as Visual Studio image optimizer along with the desired application to optimize the images used.
Also, to ensure a faster pace concerning the web pages, one can select Lossless or Lossy image optimization options, keeping in mind that the smaller the image, the faster the web performance.
3. Using Sprite Images
To make websites attractive, appealing, and user-friendly, the best option most websites opt is the use of visually stimulating images and vibrant image icons and/or cards.
In fact, it is a proven fact that users understand the concepts better when backed by images associated with it. But, it also cannot be denied that if any of the web pages have excessive images and that too those that are of higher resolution order, it will take significantly more time to download the image and thence load the page.
But there’s a way out too and that is where the role of Sprite Images in.NET comes into play. They combine multiple images into one single entity and load them together in just a single download, thus saving time and data consumption too. Thus, a Sprite Image Generator needs to be installed and added into the MVC application for using this feature.
5. Using AJAX Frequently
AJAX helps to fasten certain tasks on the website such as downloading data asynchronously that is not immediately required, for example, the content of Accordion (Collapsed Panel) and tabs.
However, the use though frequent, there should not be always too many AJAX requests.
It is prescribed to be used only when required to load more data while the user is scrolling or doing secondary tasks as there seems no logic of bringing in all the data together when the user isn’t scrolling.
