Optimizing ASP.NET 2.0 Web Project Build Performance with VS 2005

Quick Background on VS 2005 Web Site Project and VS 2005 Web Application Project options

 VS 2005 supports two project-model options: VS 2005 Web Site Projects and VS 2005 Web Application Projects

VS 2005 Web Site Projects were built-in with the initial VS 2005 release, and provide a project-less based model for doing web development that uses that same dynamic compilation system that ASP.NET 2.0 uses at runtime.  VS 2005 Web Application Projects were released as a fully supported download earlier this spring, and provide a project model that uses a MSBuild based build system that compiles all code in a project into a single assembly (similar to VS 2003 -- but without many of the limitations that VS 2003 web projects had with regard to FrontPage Server Extensions, IIS dependencies, and other issues).  To learn more about VS 2005 Web Application Projects, please review the tutorials I've published on my http://webproject.scottgu.com web-site.  Note that VS 2005 Web Application Project support will be included in VS 2005 SP1 (so no additional download will be required going forward).
