Senior Developer Evangelist


If you've ever wanted to build a highly responsive app that leverages a real-time communications library, then SignalR is for you. Real-time Web functionality is the ability to have the server push messaging aggressively to the client, instead of relying on the client to make multiple and frequent requests. SignalR is a set of ASP.NET server and client libraries you can use to build real time, scalable, Web sites and apps. You can use SignalR in both enterprise and consumer apps, and across platforms. This session covers what you need to know to build a SignalR app that connects multiple clients instantaneously.

You will learn:

  • How to use the SignalR libraries
  • About polling and real-time development techniques
  • About cross platform client connectivity
