Web Sockets Are Not Just for Web Browsers

When most people hear the term "Web Sockets", they tend to link it solely to a mechanism used by web browsers to communicate with server-side services. This is definitely the most common scenario, but is not the only use case for Web Sockets. In fact, the Web Socket protocol is an extremely viable option in many other scenarios as well. In this presentation, Chris will demonstrate to you how to enable communication between various clients (such as Metro and WPF) and services using Web Sockets. The presentation will cover the setup of Web Sockets via WCF custom bindings and NetHttpBinding. Additionally, this presentation will take a quick lap around the Web Sockets protocol in order to show you the many benefits of the protocol including firewall cooperation and duplex communication.
