Two-Way Web Apps with SignalR

Thursday March 22nd, 2018 @ 6:30 PM
J Sawyer
Lone Star College - Montgomery (MC-G G125)


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.

Note This month we’re meeting on the 4th Thursday of the month (the 22nd) instead of the 3rd due to the college being closed for spring break.
