Live document collaboration, playing cooperative and competitive games, updating sports scores, booking seats. Stateless and belated nature of HTTP requests is not a perfect match for these and other similar use cases.

WebSockets offer immediate delivery of messages in two-way communication between the client and the server. Instead of periodic polling for new messages, they are pushed to the receiver over TCP/IP connection.

Implementing WebSockets is not limited to technologies like node.js but has also been possible in PHP for quite some time with impressive results. In this talk, I will introduce this technology and tell the audience how to successfully adopt it in their PHP applications while avoiding problems and pitfalls.

Good presentation, which peaked my interest in the subject enough to make me lookup stuff. I also put in my personal comments on this talk "went a bit too fast sometimes", but I actually cannot remember that :)

Even though webSockets have been around for some time now, I have not yet had the opportunity to use them. This talk wants me to just get started with them. It was a very nice overview of the possibilities, how to setup etc.

It was brought in a structured way and I enjoyed listening to it.
