Steve Schwartz of Alfa Jango will present Web Sockets in JavaScript. The first half of the presentation will be an eyes-forward overview of the technology and the second half will be a hands-on exercise using web sockets.

Here is a preview of what he will teach us:

// Steve (server) var WebSocketServer = require('ws').Server , wss = new WebSocketServer({port: 8080}); wss.on('connection', function(ws) { ws.on('message', function(message) { ws.send("Sure thing, how's this?"); }); }); // SEM.js (browser) var connection = new WebSocket('ws://', ['soap', 'xmpp']); connection.onopen = function () { connection.send("Can you please send an abstract for this presentation?"); }; connection.onmessage = function(message) { if (message) { connection.send("Awesome, thanks!"); } }; Steve Schwartz
