Portland Java User Group: WebSockets

Oracle (Downtown Campus)
1211 SW 5th Avenue, Suite 800, Room 8005
Portland, Oregon 97204, US (map)



This month's topic: WebSockets

WebSockets is an exciting new technology that enables bidirectional communication between web applications and server-side processes. Google's Chrome browser already provides WebSockets and developers can expect to see the technology in other browsers in 2010. This presentation will cover the WebSocket protocol and JavaScript API. We'll also discuss Jetty's WebSocketServlet API and demonstrate how to use WebSockets in a GWT application.

PJUG meetings start with some time to eat and socialize (pizza and beverages are provided), followed by the featured speaker, then Q&A, discussion, sometimes a drawing to give away swag. :)

Though we like knowing how many people to expect, you don't have to RSVP, on Upcoming or otherwise. Go ahead and just show up!

Many people also go for a drink and further discussion following the meeting, at a location determined ad hoc (lately, the Market Street Pub at 10th and Market: http://mcmenamins.com/index.php?loc=24 ).
