A Training Extravaganza Coming to Your Desktop or Mobile or iPad or Android or Whatever!

Realtime Web Sockets

Nov 18, 2016

session: 1 (see session times to right)

level: Beginner

This live session was recorded and is now viewable on Adobe Connect...

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 socket.io. 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.
