Learn about the library that is making ASP.NET developers everywhere gasp in amazement. What is SignalR? It’s incredibly simple real-time web for .NET. SignalR is allowing .NET developers to create experiences not previously possible in a browser, with an easy to use high-level API that looks like magic.


Damian Edwards is a Senior Program Manager on the ASP.NET team looking after the core ASP.NET runtime, Web Forms and the real-time web framework SignalR.

    That Damian guy is a frickin' genius. Best technical presentation I've been to in a long time, possibly ever. Love the use of Notepad, and love love love that he had VS up and was writing code within five minutes of 7pm. I will say, though, that the scale-out stuff toward the end went mostly over my head. Instead of that, which seems like more of an advanced topic, I would have liked to have been exposed to more of the core SignalR API, and seen more code examples of how to communicate back and forth b/w client and server for the different kinds of communication patterns. Also, would have liked to see how to use SignalR within an ASP.NET MVC app ... is it possible, and is it any different than using it in a web forms app?
