This is a dumping ground of software development topics that I've run across and found interesting (mainly .NET development). Many topics are covered more thoroughly in other places, and much of the information is gleaned from other places, and I'll try to credit those sources when possible.

Disabling ASP.NET Session

Interesting tidbit from this MSDN page.

"You should be aware that even when not in use, sessions carry some overhead for an application. You can squeeze a little bit more performance out of your pages if you turn off sessions on pages that do not use it. Also, setting session state to read-only can also optimize pages that read but do not write data to sessions. Configure sessions in this fashion by adding an attribute to the @Page directive in one of these two ways:"

<%@ Page EnableSessionState="false" %>
<%@ Page EnableSessionState="readonly" %>
