About the Talk

This talk will cover the latest news in the exciting HTML5 feature area of Real-Time and Connectivity. There is a lot of new stuff to talk about when it comes to the related HTML5 APIs and protocols. For example, the official RFC (RFC 6455 ( for the WebSocket protocol was recently published and it has changed significantly since its earlier protocol drafts.

These HTML5 features will allow you to easily build kick-ass web applications with unparalleled functionality, speed, and responsiveness. Pay attention and you might even win a signed copy of Peter's latest edition of Pro HTML5 Programming.
