SignalR, an asynchronous signaling library, is one of the new tricks in the Microsoft web stack. Think about the possibilities available to you in a browser when you've got constant, server-initiated conversations and real-time responsiveness from within the web browser (like chat, stock updates, publish/subscribe implementations, and so on). Brady Gaster will introduce you to SignalR and will walk through the process of setting up an MVC 3.0 application to work with SignalR using both it's Hub and Connection methodologies. From the server-side implementation of each, up through the jQuery code that allows for the web content to respond to server activity, and a brief investigation into the code SignalR dynamically creates to proxy the calls will be topics covered during this session.
