In this presentation you will watch as the presenter converts a typical 2 tier application into an N-Tier application.

Maintaining State in ASP.NET Applications
Developing web applications requires you to manage “state”. All web environments are ‘stateless’ and thus you have to come up with ways to keep track of user data between web page calls. There are many ways to accomplish state management. What are all the ways, and which ones are best? That is what you will learn in this presentation.

You will Learn:
1. Effective Session Variable usage
2. Differences between Application and Cache objects
3. Using Cookies and going Cookie-less
4. Take advantage of server-side state management
5. Use of ViewState
