Two-Way Web Apps with SignalR


At Improving Houston

Thursday, January 11, 2018
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Two-Way Web Apps with SignalR

Featured Speaker: J Sawyer

Wouldn't it be nice if we could have full RPC-type functionality in our web apps, allowing us to call javascript code that's running on a page without require a round trip to the server? Or to feed frequently updated data to clients without polling? How about pushing status of long-running operations down to the client? Oh ... yeah ... and we'd like to do all of this across multiple browsers and clients in a way that scales and works through firewalls.
Sound impossible? It's not. Sound difficult? With SignalR, it's not. In this presentation, we'll take a run around SignalR and how this can be incorporated into a wide variety of applications, from web apps to services to Windows client apps, all using a single API that make real-time push notifications simple and straightforward.

About J:
J is a Senior Architect for Hitachi Consulting based in Houston, TX and who loves to write code and build cool, innovative solutions to hard problems. He has been involved with the Houston .NET User's Group (HDNUG), one of the oldest and largest .NET-focused user groups in the US, since its inception in 2001 and has watched it grow from 5-10 technologists meeting around a conference table to a thriving community of over 3000 professionals and 70-80 attendees, on average, every month. He's also a regular speaker at Houston Tech Fest, having done sessions at every one since its inception.
When not coding, J likes to hang out with his family, play with his computers and ride his Kawasaki Concours 14. But he doesn't code and ride at the same time. That would be bad.
