As of WordPress 3.9, the Heartbeat API is no longer experimental!
It’s intended to help developers synchronize data between a user’s browser and server without manually sending individual AJAX calls.
Attendees will learn how WordPress’ core implements Heartbeat, and how they can use it on their own sites to create more interactive and up-to-date admin screens.
As a bonus, users will learn how to make a WordPress site honk incessantly via a WordPress REST API endpoint.
