WebSocket is an integral part of the HTML5 family. The initial reaction to WebSocket is that it's a replacement for HTTP workarounds that mimic a persistent connection. But it's more than that. Along with other new connectivity enhancements in HTML5, it represents a foundational network stack for the new Web with living, dynamic, always-connected applications.
Besides discussing basics, we'll discuss the future implications for WebSocket as it quickly grows as a standard component of the new web. What network topologies are suitable for delivering WebSocket applications? What impact does it have on REST and Web APIs? And what kind of interesting applications are in store beyond simplistic notifications? We will demonstrate some very interesting applications using the new live web communications stack."
