Throughout the rest of this book, you will see how to improve the performance of your ASP.NET web applications and speed up your Windows Forms applications, your Web Services, and much more.
You can learn all the performance techniques in the world for each application type, but they won't help you very much if the code you write at the lowest level doesn't run as fast or use memory as efficiently as it could.
This chapter will demonstrate how to create high-performance C# code by showing you valuable techniques for memory management, dealing with the Garbage Collector, and speed techniques to improve the basic code that will be used in web applications and Windows applications alike.
