Anatomy of an E-Commerce Site

In this presentation, we will examine the technical components supporting the Chefs Catalog web site and the choices and challenges created when integrating third party systems into an ASP.NET web form site. We will look at systems for order processing ,(CommercialWare), search (IBM OmniFind Discovery Edition, Baynote Social Search), recommendations (Baynote Product Recommendations), product ratings (Bazaarvoice), international shipping (FiftyOne E4X) and others. In examining these components, we will discuss design ideas you may use in your own development and integration pitfalls to avoid. We will also talk about ASP.NET technical concerns including caching and asynchronous tasks.
