We know interactivity is the key to keep our user's interest alive but we can't reduce animation to UI anymore. Twitter, Waze, Slack... users are used to have real-time data in applications they love. But how can you turn your static API into a stream of data? By pulling? Pushing? Webhook-ing?
When talking about data streaming, we often think about WebSockets. But have you ever heard of Server-Sent Events?
In this talk we will compare those technologies to understand which one you should opt for depending on your usecase and I'll show you how we have been even further by reducing the amount of data to transfer with JSON-Patch. And because real-time data is not only needed by web (and because it's much more fun), I'll show you how we can make drone dance on streamed APIs.
Who should attend your session?
The session is open to everyone who wants to know more about PubSub, WebHooks, WebSockets and Server-Sent Events. Beginners are more than welcome!
What are the 'next steps' for an attendee to take after attending your session?
The session is a 'state of the art' on real-time. The goal is to give attendees a clear overview of each technology how does it works? What are the constraints? And perhaps the most important: what is the usecase? So the real next step would probably be to make the right choice!
You have 2 hours to spare in London, what do you do?
Pay a visit to the British Museum!
How did you find programming a drone?
Last year my CEO, Eric, was giving a 5mn pitch in a big FinTech event. How can you expect people to remember you when you only have 5 minutes on stage? One drone on each side of the stage is a good start ;)
What data did you use to make it dance?
I'm using a bitcoin API : depending on the last value a BitCoin has been sold in GBP, the drone will go up or down.
