We aim to keep our Tech Talks relevant and interesting for our viewers. We simply want to provide an open forum to discuss and ask questions about key issues around API Management. So, in keeping with that spirit, our next subject for discussion will be Websockets and the excitement surrounding HTML5′s support for the WebSocket protocol. And I’m excited to have Layer 7 API Architect Ronnie Mitra as my guest for this highly-topical Tech Talk.
The hype around the WebSocket standard, which enables a type of bi-directional, socket-based communication not possible with conventional HTTP, has been steadily increasing over the last two years. As adoption of WebSockets technology increases, API architects need to understand how they can use the protocol to build great APIs for mobile and Web applications.
In this Tech Talk, Ronnie will be discussing:
- The ins and outs of the WebSocket protocol
- The relationship between HTTP-based APIs and WebSockets
- Use cases that are a great fit for the WebSocket standard
- The challenges of securing a WebSockets connection
Of course, the discussion won’t be limited to just these topics. We also welcome any and all of your questions and comments. In fact, without them the spirit of Tech Talk Tuesday would cease to exist. So please start formulating your questions or comments and be sure to add the date to your calendar.
