Quantum Entanglement for your Web Apps using SignalR and Knockout

More Information:

April NWNUG meeting by Jason Follas.

In physics, two particles can act together in order to behave as one system so that a change made to one particle instantly affects the other - even if they are separated by great distances.

This is known as Quantum Entanglement, which Albert Einstein called "spooky action at a distance."

The closest analogy to this for web development would be to observe a web page instantly update in response to a user entering data in a different web browser.

Believe it or not, this is not only possible today, but relatively easy by using two open source libraries together: SignalR and Knockout.

SignalR is an asynchronous signaling library for .NET that helps to build real-time, multi-user systems.

Knockout is a JavaScript library that brings MVVM pattern to the web page, providing observable data, templates, and automatic data binding.

This session will demonstrate how to use this new paradigm to build highly interactive web applications.
