SharePoint BLOB caching issue solved

A couple of weeks ago Chris O’Brien – fellow MVP wrote an article on the research of the SharePoint BLOB cache he has done. During that research he has experienced some issues with some of the files not being cached properly on the client causing the browser to request the file every single time. As I’m working with Web Content Management solutions on SharePoint a lot, it definitely took my attention.

DevDays ‘09 Recap

DevDays ‘09 was an amazing event: nice venue, great content and a lot of great people.

DevDays ‘09 day 1

Wouter did a great job presenting his development tools, walking us through his Entity Pickers code and of course covering the ‘How I did it’ on his brand new site that just recently went live and which will soon be available as a CodePlex project! To keep it short: a great day full of great content!

Using PageAsyncTask to improve the performance of your website

Once in a while I like to get back to “old stuff”. It allows me to look once again at the things I’ve already done but then from another perspective: between now and then I’ve done a few projects, I’ve read a couple articles/books and spoken to some people. So it’s not surprising that quite often I find some new insights about the subjects I thought were closed. One of such topics was using the PageAsyncTask class to improve the performance of your website.
