    EQATEC has released the world’s first Microsoft Silverlight code profiler.

    A code profiler is a tool software developers use to locate performance bottlenecks in their applications. When bottlenecks are detected, the developers know what to optimize. Without a profiler the task of optimizing software applications can be like finding the needle in a haystack.

    We have tested the profiler with numerous Silverlight projects including our own ( large application. We don’t know of any limitations.

    My XAP file is 5 Mb size, is that bad?

    Unfortunately that’s a usual question for lot of new Silverlight developers, … you start coding you Silverlight app everything is easy to do, you can use lot of powerful third parties stuff, and finally you end up with an awesome application that runs quite well under Cassini / localhost, then you a realize that…

    There’s only a small issue: the XAP file takes about 5 Mb, will that be a problem once the app (an internet facing one) is on production?

    Tim Greenfield has a great tip on how to keep your Silverlight app running fast by compressing your service responses.

    Imagine you’re downloading 1MB worth of text. Compressed, that same text can usually be reduced to under 200K. This reduction can be significant enough to be noticable to even clients on good internet connections and over time will save you money on bandwidth usage. Fortunately, there’s NO need to find a 3rd party zip component or to try to do it yourself. IIS has everything all built right in, you just need to enable it.
