Keeping it Real(time)

Keeping it Real(time)

Modern web app interfaces can be dynamic with lots of data changing and flowing, but behind this there's often still a mass of AJAX requests & timers, making our work pseudo-live at best.

Web sockets allow us to create two way live data flow between server & client; WebRTC lets us allow our clients to connect to one another directly. We'll see how PHP fits into this front end ecosystem and how to augment our applications with real time components.
