Not Another Chat App (Web Sockets in the Real World)

Web sockets are an exciting new web technology that allows the server to broadcast events to the client in real time. The bad news? Try and find an example implementation that isn't a chat room or a game! Both examples are great, but they don't represent the problems that most web developers are trying to solve. This will be a collaborative session about solving real world problems with web sockets.

No prior knowledge of web sockets is necessary, but it will be very helpful to have a prior knowledge of the web request/response pattern.



  • Brief Intro to Web Sockets
  • Web Socket paradigm and its power
  • Couple of real world socket examples
  • Pros and cons of sockets
  • Open discussion on real world socket problems/solutions
