Thousands of concurrent connections with Azure SignalR Service
September Sydney .NET User Group: Thousands of concurrent connections with Azure SignalR Service by Nelly Sattari & Stafford Williams
As much as everyone loves having real-time applications, it is a pain to have them in high traffic websites. Scaling is a big issue which can be easily solved by using Azure's SignalR Service.
How can we add real-time functionality to cloud hosted web applications? How can we test and handle high traffic volume without disrupting real-time capabilities? What new and interesting problems can we solve with a bi-directional-web feature-set?
Our speakers will explain, demonstrate and guide the audience through current ASP.NET Core SignalR technology and the possibilities that real-time features can give to modern web applications.
They will also show how to use Serverless technology in the Azure cloud with Azure App Services, Azure Storage and Azure Functions to use SignalR APIs to build your Real-time web application.

When he was nine, he saw his friend's name bounce around a computer screen as the result of a program written in Amiga's AMOS BASIC and he immediately became aware that if such technological marvels were possible with code, then anything was possible with code!
