WebSockets is rapidly becoming the standard for better connecting existing backends (e.g. message brokers) and Web-based clients. What today constitutes the best choice for delivering low-latency, real time data to Rich Internet Applications is now also proving to be the new standard communication technology for all Web interaction going forward. With the limitations of HTTP lifted, what sorts of applications can now be built? Come to this session to hear about how WebSocket technology is delivering on being the basis next generation's web applications.
The talk will start with the popular Backbone.js library as a basis, discuss its shortcomings and present a field-tested application architecture. As an example, the talk will show how to implement an OAuth-based client-side login via Facebook, Twitter or Google.
In my talk I want do present this development by laying my focus onto those projects that are overlooked by the most jQuery user. As a jQuery developer I want to describe my work for these projects and how one may support them: jQuery is open-source and will remain that way.
