RubyMKE: An Introduction to HTML5 WebSockets & CRAMP

One of the more interesting items for developers in the HTML5 specification is the WebSocket API. It brings real two-way communication with a remote host to the browser. It enables a new type applications like Pusher and the apps built on top of it, in a standard way, without requiring Adobe Flash in modern browsers.

Chris Powers will demonstrate how to build a Chat application that make use of the WebSocket API. He will then demonstrate how to integrate the backend with Pusher and then with the asynchronous evented Web app framework Cramp

    Chris Powers' presentation on WebSockets and CRAMP was well organized and very informative. The after-meetup at Transfer Pizza was fun too. Thanks Chris!

    Glad to see a good sized group of guys come out, hopefully the group will continue to grow! It's encouraging to see a huge range of Rubyists, from noobs to pros, all in one room learning.
