Well we a week away from launching our project here... I currently have the site on our test server and and working with optimizing...
I am doing this because it takes almost 15sec for and of our pages to load into the browser. After setting caching on some of the pages this drastically improved to about 1 or 2 seconds... This is where we want to be with the page loads...
But my questions is regarding dynamic data that we might have on a page. For example i have built a control that displays a list of resorts (we a travel site) with pricing and the ability for the user to book a vacation at the resort...
Now the pricing data (control) is ever changing and needs to be live data, so i can not cache this without running the risk of allowing a user to book based on old data... So how do i optimize this page to load in the 2sec (plus however long the request to our web services are for the pricing data)...
I have read and am doing all the optimizing tricks mentioned, but non of these docs mention how to handle dynamic data... Is there perhaps some way to force a particular element of the page (control) to process and cache the rest of the page? I wouldn't think so - but how does everyone else handle a scenario like this?
