Server-Sent Events: An Introduction
Benjamin Schneider, PayPal (http://www.paypal.de)
Pushing content from the server to the client has a long history. In the past we dealt with techniques like long polling, Flash or Java sockets, which all seemed more like a workaround than a real solution. Nowadays everyone is talking about WebSockets. But there is yet another way to solve this very specific problem that arrived with HTML5. This talk is about giving the audience an introduction to Server-Sent Events, showing how easy it is to set up a push server and a listening client, and what the differences, advantages and disadvantages compared to other techniques are.
Benjamin works as a Software Engineer for PayPal Germany (http://www.paypal.de).
