During my contract in Betdaq
(for six months, three times extended - already one and half year) I've been a member of the development team working on the new version of the existing online betting web application
In the first two months I was researching the performance issues of the previous website version and suggesting how should it be re-implemented in a better way. It included all the aspects like client and server caching, saving request-response cycles, improving client and server performance, testing and analysis, preparing coding standards and migration from ASP.NET 1.1 to 2.0.
In the second part of the contract (next ten months) we were developing the new version of the site including the performance solutions. We were using Microsoft SourceSafe as a source control and many web development tools for performance researching and debugging.
The web site was written in ASP.NET 2.0 and C# using XSLT transformations and AJAX (the exchanging formats were XML and JSON).
I like Betdaq and the guys there and will stay here at least to the September this year. What then? Who knows...
