?? ?Pradeep Elankumaran will be giving a preview of his RubyNation talk this Thursday. Sorry for the late notice!
?? ?The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is a set of open standards for real-time presence and communication that has been powering high-traffic instant messaging systems for close to a decade. Apart from instant messaging, it is now possible to write web applications that leverage the power of XMPP's message delivery mechanisms to provide superior user interfaces and backend architectures. This session will provide an overview of the XMPP protocol, examples of scalable architectures and introduces libraries to interface Ruby web frameworks with XMPP.
