This month we have an excellent speaker duo from Olivine Labs that will be showing us how to make more responsive web applications using WebSockets.  They will first review what WebSockets are and how they can be used in your applications.  They will create a demo application using sockets to demonstrate bidirectional communication allowing the server to push data to a client without polling.  Sockets also enable full duplex communication allowing client and server to send data simultaneously, and all conversations are protected with the property security protocols

If you want to make your web application faster and enable more flexible communication with the server, this is a talk you need to see.
