We live in a world of ever-changing data. Whether you're building a business or social app, a retail website or a game, your users expect to see updates as new data becomes available. SignalR is an ideal candidate for any situation where a user refreshes a web page to see what changed or the page implements Ajax long polling to retrieve new data. SignalR is a library for ASP.NET developers that simplifies the process of having server code push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available, rather than having the server wait for a client to request new data.

In this class you will gain the skills required to build real-time server-push capabilities into your applications. You will learn the fundamentals and key concepts of SignalR, along with different programming models it offers for the server and clients. Once you master the basics, you will learn how to use SignalR in real-world applications, apply it in different ways and in various contexts, and scale it up. We will conclude with guidance on how to best leverage SignalR when building real-world applications.

During this training you will learn:

  • How to install and configure SignalR
  • How to develop solutions using SignalR's Persistent Connections and Hubs programming models
  • How to architect and implement real-world solutions using SignalR

Who should attend:

  • Developers and architects
  • Those that have knowledge of C# and some ASP.NET is assumed


Session 1: SignalR Fundamentals - 11am ET

In this session, you will learn the basics of SignalR and the Persistent Connections model of communication. You will then learn how to integrate SignalR into an ASP.NET application, use SignalR to communicate with clients, track client connection state, and develop applications using SignalR that will communicate with both browser-based and .NET-based clients.


Session 2: Deep Dive into the Hub Programming Model – 1pm ET

The second session will dive into the Hub programming model. You will develop an application where the clients call methods on the server and vice versa. You'll also learn how to assign connections, manage, and leverage groups in an application.


Session 3: Practical, Real-World Solutions with SignalR – 3pm ET

In the third session, you will learn how to apply SignalR to real-world solutions. You will take SignalR beyond IIS and self-host it, see how to scale-out solutions beyond a single SignalR server using a variety of backplanes, and generate some performance numbers. Lastly, you will learn how to architect solutions using the two models.
