Ask MDN - WebSockets

Conferences & Meetups — Posted

This Fridays "Ask MDN" focusses on WebSockets.

This time around we’re focussing on WebSockets, which make it possible to have two-way communication between a browser and the server in real-time. All of this is done without the need to constantly poll for new data with techniques like AJAX; instead everything is streamed to you as and when it’s needed (rather than requests coming from you with AJAX).

This session will occur on Friday at 6pm BST/10am PDT/1pm EDT.
