Location: Metropolitan Ballroom II & III

Abstract: This presentation will focus on the development of next generation realtime web apps with the use of Socket.IO. Socket.IO is a Node.JS project that makes WebSockets and realtime possible in all browsers. It also enhances WebSockets by providing built-in multiplexing, horizontal scalability, automatic JSON encoding/decoding, and more.

This talk will cover:
•    HTML5 WebSocket, server sent events, long polling and how the realtime transports work
•    The Socket.IO API
•    The creation of an example realtime app
It will also introduce people to server side JavaScript, and highlight its importance for the realtime web and the future of web development.
