Title: How to push data to Frontends with SSE

Abstract: Realtime in web applications is a challenge that developers face, and one hard decision is what technology/architecture to use. In this talk you will have an hands on building a Streaming API in NodeJS for your frontend. This is possible with SSE and HTTP2, and is so simple that you will question if you really need to pay Pusher or other service to push data.
