I have a Master’s degree in computer science and a bachelor's degree in applied mathematics. I’m also known to be a technical author with several technical publications in the form of books and articles. Besides, I'm an open source enthusiast and have coordinated or contributed to several projects. Currently, I maintain my projects on GitHub.
As a content provider on the internet, not only I publish on this technical blog, but also I'm a podcaster and publish audio podcasts on Mash This.
Trying to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, I'm a pescetarianist and exercise almost everyday. I’m an avid runner, soccer defender, and tennis player. I also have an interest in fashion.
As I mentioned recently, today I talked at North Dallas .NET Users Group for the second time, and this time it was about ASP.NET SignalR. I tried to introduce this new member of ASP.NET family to the audience.
I started my talk with some slides on why we need a framework like ASP.NET SignalR and then moved on to some theoretical principles about SignalR. After that, I switched to code and implemented two broadcasting examples with PersistentConnection and hubs, and showed how WebSockets and long polling work in action using Fiddler. I concluded the talk by showing an example of connecting to my SignalR application using a .NET library, and answered some questions in the end.
I’ve published the slides of my talk as well as the source code samples that you can download. UserGroup.TV has recorded my talk and it would be available soon. I will update this post with the link when it was published.
