Looking for a tech talk on web sockets

#1

I organize the speakers for the Bay Area Large-Scale Production Engineering

meetup (http://www.meetup.com/SF-Bay-Area-Large-Scale-Production-Engineering/ ;

take a look at the “PAST” tab to see the kinds of events we’ve had).

For our event on Thursday November 21, 2013, I’m looking for speakers on the

topic of “Real-Time Streaming Data” (see http://www.meetup.com/SF-Bay-Area-Large-Scale-Production-Engineering/events/137185282/). I’m looking for talks

about web sockets, applications built using web sockets, comet-style

architectures, or similar technology.

As you can see from looking at our past events, I usually pick a topic, and

then try to get 2-3 talks on that topic. Talks are usually 20-25 minutes

long. This is a technical audience, and they don’t appreciate a marketing

pitch. They’re eager to get into the nuts and bolts of the topic, including

demos, code samples, and architecture.

If you’re going to be in the Bay Area then, and would be interested in giving

a talk, please let me know here, or (preferably) through meetup.com.

Thanks,

Chris Westin

Chris,

take a look at the "PAST" tab to see the kinds of events we've had).

For our event on Thursday November 21, 2013, I'm looking for speakers on the
topic of "Real-Time Streaming Data" (see
http://www.meetup.com/SF-Bay-Area-Large-Scale-Production-Engineering/events/137185282/).

about web sockets, applications built using web sockets, comet-style
architectures, or similar technology.

Awesome! Thanks for your announcement here!

The Autobahn project has been involved in WebSocket from quite the beginning and I think WebSocket will bring a tectonic shift in how Web applications are built over the coming years.

I'd love to give a talk, but I am in Germany, and unfortunately cannot justify a trip over the ocean for a quick meetup. Well.

I've retweeted and spread the word, so if I get feedback, I'll forward.

There is one more aspect I'd like to point out: the meetup title includes the word "streaming".

In the context of WebSocket, that can mean two things:

1. "streaming", as in e.g. stock data, and contrasted to the "old world" of Comet like hacks and polling.

This suites an introductory talk to WebSocket for an audience that just gets into the whole topic.

2. "streaming", as in media and larger data, and over WebSocket. This then will need to get into advanced WebSocket topics of flow-control, TCP backpressure etc, e.g.:

"Flow control with the Producer-Consumer Pattern"
http://autobahn.ws/python/tutorials

For 2. to make sense, the audience needed to have at least some knowledge of WebSocket, since otherwise 20mins is simply too short.

If 2) is what you are after (but also for 1.), I'd like to point out the following announcement by Tom Sheffler.

He is using Autobahn and WebSocket to create an awesome personal audio broadcasting mobile app:

It seems he is in the SF bay area, so Tom?
