Using DotNetNuke Caching in Custom Modules

03 Nov

One of the biggest concerns for developers these days is how to increase the performance of delivered applications. User expectations have changed over the past few years and the expectations are very, very high in regards to page load times and how quickly information should be returned to the users. Thankfully, as part of DotNetNuke there are a number of different features that can help applications work quickly. Some of these features are known by everyone, things such as the DotNetNuke performance settings under "Host Settings", Cache Time settings on a module by module basis, and if on Professional Edition the built in page Output Cache Provider. However, one often overlooked API that is helpful for developers is the DataCache API. In this post I'll do a deep dive into why this API is so helpful and some scenarios where leveraging this API it can reduce page load times and system resources needed for each page request.
