Real-Time Web Apps in 2015 & Beyond

A session at NYC Camp 2015

Saturday 18th July, 2015

11:00am to 11:45am (EST)

It has been possible to instantly push information from a web server to a web browser for around 15 years, but real-time web technology has finally gone mainstream thanks to the experiences offered by applications like Twitter, Facebook, Uber, Google Docs and the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT). Technology advancements have also played their part with raw technology improvements such as WebSockets, and solutions like Socket.IO, SignalR, Faye, Firebase and Pusher.

In this talk I'll cover the past, present and future of client and server communication technology, the realtime web and provide a number of use cases and demonstrations of how the technology is actually used today (it's not just chat and spaceship games).
