So we don't have to deal with the mess of a Pirates home game, we're moving this meeting one week earlier.
A project request from an internal client requested a web application to be used by dispatchers that coordinate both ground and air ambulances and regional emergency rooms. An important requirement is that all the dispatchers would see the current status of all tracked emergencies in real time on one web page.
This talk will show the steps that were followed to come up with a simple prototype that became a proof of concept for this application. The prototype shows that integrating SignalR, JQuery, Web API, Knockout-JS and AJAX methods can create a very responsive single page application. The talk will detail how SignalR and Knockout-JS generate a powerful synergy.
