I would like to cover some real world applications of a webworker and of a websocket. I want to go over times when it would be appropriate to use a websocket instead of using ajax. I would like to go over a simple demo, and have people participate by building their own WebSocket client. A possible second class could be a more advanced class of setting up a Node.js Websocket/Socket.IO server and building a game to use it.
Also, I would like to talk about the Socket.IO library, showing people how to use it and explaining the advantages of it vs. native websocket stuff.
