ASP.NET SignalR is a library that gives web applications the ability to have server-side code push content to the connected clients. This is quite a powerful feature as it enables connected clients to receive notifications (and data) of updates as it happens. The tremendous power of ASP.NET SignalR is often illustrated with a chat demo. While impressive as a demo, though, a chat is not a common type of application we write every day. In this talk, Dino will review a bunch of concrete benefits we can get from SignalR in our everyday work such as counting online users, updating multiple screens after an update, monitoring the progress of a remote task. More than everything else, though, SignalR is a critical resource for building effective event-based web architectures.
