This chapter is designed to provide you with valuable techniques and solutions to real-world problems faced by people creating production ASP.NET applications.
When building enterprise-scale ASP.NET websites, you very rarely find that a showstopper problem involves a programmer not knowing how a specific method of a control works or how to display something a certain way. More frequently the problems occur in trying to build applications that work in web farms, or applications that take into account user location, language, and culture.
This chapter will show you how to build ASP.NET applications that work properly within a web farm context, as well as how to build applications that take into account geographic location, user language, and cultural identity. Wrapping up this chapter will be a discussion of two advanced techniques for enhancing and empowering ASP.NET applications: HttpModules and HttpHandlers.
