The web is changing; Users no longer want to just be social - they
want to interact and participate in real-time. They want to chat,
vote, play and see results instantly. Delivering real-time web and
mobile apps that work seamlessly across all devices, browsers and
networks anywhere in the world is hard and very expensive - just ask
Skype, WebEx or Facebook.

Join us for an inspiring and informative conversation on
state-of-the-art Web Communication by the CTO of the leading Real-time Network. Discover advanced functionality offered by Mobile and Web APIs, and learn what companies such as Yahoo!, GetTaxi and Rebtel were able to deliver quickly and affordably.

You will learn how to directly interact with your users instantly, in
real-time, using an always-on socket connection, allowing you to push
data via broadcast or unicast communication. Utilizing a Real-time
Network makes this easy for your development cycles, and we will show you how. Startups using the Real-time Network today will be
represented and you'll learn how and why they are using it.
