Do you want to build truly realtime web applications and experiences? If you do, then this book is for you. Author Ted Roden, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that shows you how to build applications and interfaces that react to user input and input from other servers in milliseconds, rather than waiting for web pages to refresh.
This most excellent book assumes that you?re comfortable with modern web application development, but makes almost no assumptions that you know the specific technologies discussed. In other words, rather than sticking with a simple technology, or writing about building applications using a specific programming language, this book uses many different technologies.
