ASP.NET SignalR is a library for ASP.NET developers that simplifies the process of adding real-time web functionality to applications. During this presentation, we will see how to utilize SignalR across multiple platforms and how to integrate it into the enterprise. We will also take a look at best practices for development and maintenance of applications utilizing SignalR. Finally, we will take readings from sensors (most likely solar, temperature, and humidity) and send the data to a SignalR service in Windows Azure and from there we will process the data in real time for updating the UI on a variety of clients.
Our speaker for tonight is Jared Rhodes. Jared is a Senior Consultant for Magenic Technologies located in Atlanta. He is focused on server side technologies for the enterprise and wireless embedded technologies and holds an MCSD for web applications. Lately, Jared has been using Windows Azure alongside SignalR to create real time data feeds for remote sensors as part of the "Internet of Things".
