ASP.NET 2.0: Wow!

For about three years we’ve seen lots of presentations where there was a lot of hyp regarding new things coming in ASP.NET 2.0. Master Pages, Membership, two-way data binding, etc, etc, etc. We’ve heard a lot about developers being able to write 70% less code with all the new things.
That is all great!!!
However, there wasn’t much hype about how terribly slow it is to build a web project. Gee, it’s cool that we can write 70% less code, but it’s definitely not cool having to wait almost 5 minutes for a 6-page project to build. Even if you right-click on a single page and choose "Build Page", that takes long and painful minutes.
It’s hard to understand how this thing shipped with a major problem like that.
Ok, it’s just finished building the project here, I can resume work. I’ll probably post something new to the blog during the next build.

    Hmm – 5 minutes for 6 pages is definitely a configuration issue with your project.  If you can send me email ( along with details of your project I can help you fix it.
