In the competition against native code, the web is going realtime. ‘Save’ buttons are disappearing. Even AJAX is starting to feel slow and clunky. Still polling for changes? That’s sooo 2010. Some solutions have been around for a few years now, however they’ve been hacked on top of long polling, network timeouts and heavy protocols. Further detracting from their use: they’ve been hard to support and sale on the server-side. In this session, networking-pro Tatham Oddie will show you the lightweight, binary-level protocols that are now available to web developers. We’ll walkthrough OS level support in IIS 8, platform support in ASP.NET 4.5, and the library that makes it all easy: SignalR. Finally, we’ll answer the dreaded question, “but how do I make this work everywhere today?”
