If you’re going to have the finest available websites, you want to have them engagingly designed with the most cutting edge development tools. It’s certainly possible to sculpt rock with a hammer and chisel. But can you get the kind of flawless detail in your final sculpture that becomes available with modern construction tools like sanders and jackhammers?
Perhaps, but it will take you a lot more time, a lot more effort, and ultimately you pay a high opportunity cost. It’s the same with website design. It’s certainly possible to design a fine site without any tools refined through an open-source community like ASP.NET. But will the end result of your efforts be the most profitable conclusion you could’ve attained?
Running your site through its paces with tools that aren’t as refined as those from a cost-less community incorporating roughly fifteen years’ continuous development will likely lose time and opportunity. Such a route will take you longer, meaning you’ll be more tied up with varying projects that don’t go as far as they could. You won’t get as much done because you can’t.
But if you can harness such open source energies, it’s like switching out that individual coding chisel and hammer for a suite of construction tools from the most successful building organizations.
Using The Tools Available
According to Stackify.com, ASP.NET performance revolves around the tools involved: “One of the best things about being a .NET developer is all the amazing development tools that can make your life easier.”
These tools include .NET code profilers, performance profilers and transaction tracers for ASP.NET, .NET Application Performance Management (APM), Real User Monitoring, Windows Performance Counters, Custom Performance Metrics (KPIs; Key Performance Indicators), Web Server Access Logs (IIS), ASP.NET Failed Request Tracing, and Exception Tracking.
A song written on a piece of paper, and a song played by a band, aren’t the same thing. On paper, everything’s perfect. In practice, sometimes getting the notes right may take a lot of concentration. The translation process between concept and applied use takes time. The better your musicians, the smoother and quicker the transition.
When you’ve developed dynamic webpages internally, they may work fine on internal systems; like a song on paper. But when launched, application performance is affected by changing factors that can’t be replicated in development. To extend the analogy, ASP.NET’s an orchestra of professional musicians properly playing the music of your dynamic webpage.
Why Solutions Like ASP.NET Are Important
You’ve got to have some means of checking your site’s online APM. You need to see what real user traffic looks like, and how it affects the site. Knowing the performance is core to understanding what kind of service level you need continuously available, and whether or not your site is doing what it was intended to.
Indicators can help you determine whether or not your site is going to continue in a positive trend or no. You also want to see what kind of access is going on, and why certain requests may or may not go through. Certainly a skilled enough web designer can monitor these things without the best tools, but it’s hard to imagine a scenario where this is ideal.
The internet continues to transition into a more integral center of social progression. It is more ubiquitous than at any time in human history, that trend is increasing. The demand for dynamic websites has become an integral component of societal infrastructure. The time is ripe for well-designed websites. So put your best foot forward with the right tools.
