Web Sockets and SignalR - Chris Alcock

In this session we will explore the key concepts of new 'HTML5' Web Sockets standard, looking at its implementation on both the client and server, before moving on to look at the use of SignalR for connectivity and RPC between server and client, looking at both browser and alternative client implementations.  The session will discuss the relative merits of both technologies, and look at how SignalR can give the best of both worlds.

    Chris has sent me the source code and slides:

    "I’ve put the source code for the demos up on BitBucket - The old slides from the first version of the talk which have significantly more text, and some notes on the slides and demos can also be found here:";

    My first meet-up and I found it very enjoyable. Good mixture of theory and code in the Web Sockets talk, and the show and tell was interesting.

    This was a great introduction to WebSockets and SignalR with loads of code and slick switching between demos and theory. I was in VS @ home in under an hour! Good work! Good questions and well answered by Chris.

    Also enjoyed the show and tell but i must have missed something as it looked like a standard instantiation of a class that inherited from another class? Java's not my thing anymore so I could have clearly missed the point. As for the builder pattern? I felt a little uncomfortable with the duplication across classes but I'm off too read more which is always a good thing.

      Probably just me going a bit to fast, I used correctly the builder pattern will work with a class hierarchy without to much code repetition, you do get some repatriation between the builder and the object being built but I think this is better than having multiple overloaded constructors.

      Hi Graham - any chance you could share the code? I can't remember what the instances that you were building were like and I'd like to have a closer look.

    Really great. The use of sockets is now clearer. Thanks!
