Meeting Information

Title: SignalR

SignalR is a new component in the Microsoft ASP.NET stack, enabling asynchronous signaling from the server to the browser. By providing a channel for server-initiated conversations to the browser, an entirely new class of interactive, real-time applications can be created. In this session, we will go beyond the simple chat server example and demonstrate how to use SignalR to connect your browser-based applications to the events produced by your back-end systems (such as order updates, inventory changes, etc.), and explain how the server is able to execute Javascript methods in the browser.
