Optimizing a website's performance with Grunt

Milan Kačurák    —       —    Article

Don’t you hate it when someone or something wastes your time? I guess everyone does – especially when it comes to websites. The longer it takes for your website to load, the higher the chances are that a visitor will leave before your page is displayed. Before you know it, you’ve lost a potential customer. Over the past several days, we’ve been optimizing CSS and JavaScript files with Grunt to improve the performance of the Kentico DevNet website. The final result is that the website is 33% faster than before. So far, so good. In this article, I will discuss how to speed up your website by integrating Grunt into your development process with Kentico.

When developing new controls, modules or web parts, you should always think about performance and caching. But sometimes you are unable to create caching dependencies that cover your scenario, so you need to use an alternative approach to keep the most recent objects in the cache and to remove old ones before the cache expires. One of the possible approaches is discussed in this post, in which we implement a method that caches the last N requested objects.

Predictive smart search without postbacks

Boris Pocatko    —       —    Article

A lot of modern websites today feature a predictive search in the header of each page. I would bet that your website too has a search box at the top of every page. This gives the visitor a convenient way on how to search your website from anywhere. This functionality comes with a price tag of course, as any feature you add to your website. In this case the price tag is quite high, since when using our build in search you cause postbacks, so you can't use output caching. Let's fix that.

Ease of use and learnability for non-technical users — that's one of the things we care about in Kentico. We started with a major redesign in Kentico 8, in which new navigation and design were accompanied by many usability improvements. Based on massively positive feedback from our partners and customers, we concluded that this was the right thing to do. And we continued with this theme in Kentico 8.1.

Kentico 8 Marketing Automation Sample Code Snippets

Brian McKeiver    —       —    Article

Recently I was tasked with creating my own Marketing Automation Process Action inside of Kentico 8. I wasn't exactly sure of which method signature to start from so it took a bit of digging to figure out the right class to inherit from. Luckily it didn't take long because the excellent help documentation that comes with Kentico 8 set me on the right path. I'm hoping to save the next Kentico developer who has to do this some time, so I have posted two sample code snippets below. Have I mentioned that I love how easy it is to extend the built-in foundation of Kentico ?
