Upcoming talk: ‘OMG! Someone broke the Internet!’ – Manchester, May 19th

I’m giving a talk on push-to-the-browser at the Manchester geek night on May the 19th. Not quite sure of the location yet – stay tuned…

WebSockets: OMG! Someone broke the internet!

So we’ve finally worked out how to build massively scalable internet applications. REST and Resource Oriented Architectures are proving hugely successful; but the Internet is changing. WebSockets are a W3C supported protocol that offer developers greater flexibility when implementing the next generation of internet applications. This flexibility doesn’t come without cost. The speaker will explore the practical applications of the WebSocket protocol, it’s limitations and the impact on internet-scale software engineering. This talk is targeted at Developers, Technical Leaders and Architects. There may even be some code.
