Title: The evolution of REST APIs toward real-time Internet messaging

Summary: Do your feel like REST is lacking something? Join me for a journey down the path of real-time Internet messaging! We'll cover: REST polling, long polling, conceptual push, notification push (APNS, GCM), realtime push, mobile network efficiency, and the draft specifications by the W3C and IETF. We’ll also touch on some of the business verticals that are embracing this transformation.
