This month Damian Montero will be presenting on Web Sockets and Web Notifications. Web servers usually just sit around and wait for us to ask them for a website. But with modern browsers it can be the SERVER that initiates the conversation. This finally finishes off the debate of "What can't a website do that an app can" Now we can create rich experiences were the app looks and works just like an application or desktop software. To show off the power we will be playing a game where everyone in the talk will be able play live on the big screen. No Xbox controller needed. Just bring your phone. Bio: Damian Montero is a Web Developer with over 19 years experience in the field. With a long history in South Florida (except for his time at Skype in San Francisco); Damian can be seen presenting at most events in South Florida (including the South Florida Code Camp). He is a HUGE fan of the South Florida community and always strives to make it the center of tech he believes it should be. He’s won 5 hackathons including “Best HTML5 App” at the 2013 AT&T Developer Summit. Bio Image: http://damianmontero.com/DamianProfilePic.png
