Tips on how to improve ASP.NET web application performance
1) Turn off Tracing unless until required
 
2) Turn off Session State, if not required
3) Disable View State of a Page if possible
 
4) Set debug=false in web.config
 
5) Avoid Response.Redirect
 
6) Unnecessary round trips
7) Avoid throwing exceptions
 
8) Use Finally method to kill resources
 
9) Use Client Side Scripts for validations
 
10) Avoid unnecessary round trips to the server
 
11) Use Page.ISPostBack
 
12) Include Return statements with in the function/method
 
13) Use Foreach loop instead of For loop for String Iteration
 
14) Avoid unnecessary indirection
 
15) Use "ArrayLists" in place of arrays
16) Always check Page.IsValid when using Validator Controls
 
17) Use Paging
 
18) Store your content by using caching
19) Use low cost authentication
 
20) Minimize the number of web server controls
 
21) Avoid using unmanaged code
 
22) Avoid making frequent calls across processes
 
23) Cleaning Up Style Sheets and Script Files
24) Design with ValueTypes
 
25) Minimize assemblies
 
26) Encode using ASCII when you don't need UTF
 
27) Avoid Recursive Functions / Nested Loops
 
28) Minimize the Use of Format ()
 
29) Place StyleSheets into the Header
 
30) Put Scripts to the end of Document
31) Make JavaScript and CSS External
32) Use StringBuilder when alter a string.In C# a string is immutable and cannot be altered, its actually creating a new string, which in turn uses more memory than necessary, creates more work for the garbage collector and makes the code execution run slower.
33) For casting an object to another object, use as operator
 
34) Choose readonly over const. Becuase const evaluated at compile-time which means if it's changed at a later date, you have to not only recompile that application, but all applications that reference that application. In constrast, readonly is evaluated at run-time providing you a lot more flexibility.
 
For Database Operations
 
1) Return Multiple Resultsets
 
2) Connection Pooling and Object Pooling
3) Use SqlDataReader Instead of Dataset wherever it is possible
4) Keep Your Datasets Lean
5) Avoid Inefficient queries
6) Avoid joining as much as possible
7) Unnecessary round trips
8) Too many open connections
9) Avoid Transaction misuse
10) Avoid Normalized tables
11) Reduce Serialization
12) Do Not Use CommandBuilder at Run Time
13) Use Stored Procedures whenever possible
14) Avoid Auto-Generated commands
15) Use Sequential Access as often as possible
16) Use commandParameter for passing parameter in stored procedure/query
17) In case of passing commandParameter specify datatype length if possible
18) Implement paging at stored procedure level, retrieve only chunk of data that you need to display after paging.
 
ASP.NET applications developed using VB:
 
1) Enable Option Strict and Option Explicit for your pages
2) Use early binding in Visual Basic or JScript code
3) Put Concatenations in One Expression
4) Avoiding Use of Class Destructors. Class destructors (implemented as the Finalize() method in VB.NET) cause extra overhead for the garbage collector, because it must track which objects have been finalized before their memory can be reclaimed
 
Some other points to remember
 
1) Do not overload you App_Code folder with DAL/BLL codes.Use separate layer for them
2)Minimizing Method Calls by investigating common functions
3) Avoid over use of collection
4)The .NET garbage collection scheme can intentionally delay reclamation of objects until memory is available, so keep in mind how you are playing with objects
