SignalR is described as "Incredibly simple real-time web for .NET", and that's exactly what it is. In this talk, Nathan will dive deep into SignalR, showing examples on various topics throughout the demo from Extensibility & Configuration to Performance Tuning & Deployments in Webfarms (including the Azure Service Bus). The demo application will be a fully functional application to take Little League baseball game updates from multiple sources and display them in a dashboard to users in real-time. We'll deploy in the Azure cloud for all to play with and see it all come together.
Nathan Duchene is a software engineer for Net Health Systems, Inc. in the Strip District and has been working with the .NET framework, SQL Server, and other Microsoft technologies since 2006.
Co-Author with Richard Dudley in writing "Microsoft Azure: Enterprise Application Development", published in 2010 by Packt Publishing, he's been watching the Azure cloud grow from it's early pre-beta releases. You may recognize Nathan from the Code Camp in April 2009, who was a part of a group demo on Silverlight 2 in the Azure cloud. If you do, you may also recall both technologies being pre-beta at the time, which made for an interesting (and non-working) demo, but fun and informative nonetheless!
When Nathan's not sitting in front of a computer, he enjoys spending time with his family, chasing the 3 kids around through their adventures and all that comes with it!
