SignalR is an asynchronous signaling library for ASP.NET. It's designed to help you build real-time web applications without a lot of hassle. In the past, developers would have to wire up "real-time" applications as a series of polls to a webserver, waiting for it to receive data back that was useful. This approach usually cost more in bandwidth than we wanted it to. SignalR simplifies this process, and makes it more useful for the ASP.NET developer. In this presentation, Kevin Griffin will guide you through implementing SignalR into your applications, and how you can take advantage of everything it has to offer.
Sure, you know how to sprinkle a little jQuery on your pages to make them look "cool", but what about building a really advanced application in the browser? In this session you will learn how you can use Knockout.js to leverage the Model View View Model pattern right in the browser to build advanced UI interactions. Next, you will learn how to take your app to the next level by adding real-time updates with SignalR.

Built from the ground-up, Windows Phone brings together what you care about most, and brings it to you in an innovative and simple Metro UI interface. You and your content are at the center of it all through the Start screen experience with Live Tiles and integrated Hubs which provide rich & continuous user experience. SignalR, on the other hand, is a very cool piece of technology that provides async signaling library to build real-time, multi-user interactive applications connecting disparate systems. What do you get when we combine personalization of Windows Phone & the adaptability of SignalR? We get instant real-time communication between phone & backend server. We get location service applications. Chat. Stocks. Alerts. Endless possibilities! Come join us as we explore some of these new opportunities through demos & code samples.
