Last 15 spots now open - HTML5 WebSockets - this Thursday 20 October @ 7.30pm

Hi All,

I've just opened up the last few spaces for London Web this month - as we focus in on:

HTML5 WebSockets with Brad Drysdale.

This Thursday 20 October at 7.30pm.

Radisson Edwardian Kenilworth Hotel, 97 Great Russell StreetLondon WC1B 3LB - Closest Underground: Tottenham Coart Road


You're probably aware of the various chat systems around the web (Facebook chat for example) but recently there has been more of a desire for other types of interaction using these technologies. Many have requested talks on Node.js, Comet long-polling, or similar technologies. WebSockets are the evolution of these technologies, and a developing standard being progressed by the IETF.

The HTML 5 standard specifies new APIs for storage, drawing, drag-and-drop, and other areas that have made web programming painful. Browsers have already begun incorporating parts of HTML 5 (canvas, for example) even though the specification is far from complete. The HTML 5 Communication section includes two additional connectivity features: Server-Sent Events, a standardization of HTTP push, and WebSockets, a cross-domain safe, full-duplex connection. Server-Sent Events will make real-time updates and notifications easy, and Web Sockets provide the functionality necessary to build chat for the web without the previously required hackery.

Come and hear the latest on what this great technology allows! RSVP here.

Brad Drysdale is the Technical Director in EMEA for Kaazing. Brad has also worked at Openwave and Netscape Communications in various pre-sales and technical evangelist roles.

Podcast video is available from past months: here and here . Please let us know if you can help with a video camera this month, or if you would like to share something with London Web - every third Thursday of the month.
