I was wondering what are the best practices when creating objects, performing LINQ in C#. For instance, I realize that when I open up a connection using LINQ I should be putting the model object into a using statement like this:
using(var ctx = new mymodel())
using(var user = new Users())
public ActionResult InsertUser()
var user = new Users();
Before you do any performance tweaks I highly recommend to run a memory profiler (for example JetBrains dotMemory, but there are others) and find out the actual source of the problem. Without information from profiler, your optimisations will be like sticking your finger at a sky and shouting "Rainbow!" i.e. useless at best, harmful at worst.
Also after identifying issues with profiler, but before starting changing your code, I recommend reading about how Garbage Collection works in .Net. Here are some references to get you started:
