Realtime with WebSockets

WebSockets are here! Are you taking advantage of this technology yet? If not, ColdFusion makes it really simple as of version 10. In this presentation I will cover how to get WebSockets working on your app/site and discuss real life pitfalls that I have encountered in the trenches on my own applications. I’ll also cover tips and tricks to debugging WebSockets that will help you overcome common obstacles. Attendees will: ¥ Learn how to setup WebSockets using ColdFusion. ¥ Be given a replacement for the Adobe provided test suite ¥ Be given an enhanced wrapper to deal with connection drops not handled by ColdFusion's library to be able to take action and notify the user, so your app/site does not appear broken! Attendees should have some basic knowledge of JavaScript, as it is needed to work with WebSockets. Not working with Adobe ColdFusion or a version that has WebSockets? That is ok, I will also review how easy it is to add this functionality to your app/site using This demo will consist of a barebones setup that will allow you to subscribe and publish messages to and from your clients as well as broadcasting from the server
