Details

We're going to have a hack day centred around realtime web technologies.

It will be a day long event - with tonnes of opportunity to learn about, and hack with, technologies such as WebSockets (https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/WebSockets), Server Sent Events (http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/eventsource/basics/), WebRTC (http://www.webrtc.org/), and more.

More details to come, but it's going to be awesome. (There might even be some stickers!)

Space is limited - so you must be signed up here to attend. (Also, only sign up if you're sure you can attend!)

12.45 - retrospectives

5.30 - show & tell

What to bring

It'll be good to have a laptop with node/io.js installed. Any other web-connected devices (phones/tablets/raspberryPis) might be fun too.

We'll provide you with some sample code to get you up and running with some realtime apis/libraries.

If you have any particular ideas that you'd like to work on - have a think, and be ready to pitch it (max 60s); we'll be selecting a few ideas and working in teams throughout the day.
