Learn SignalR: Make a Full Featured Chat App From Scratch
What you'll learn
- Build an enterprise level real-time chat application from scratch
- Understand the importance and the challenges for real-time web functionality
- Understanding the difference between real-time web and standard HTTP protocol communication
- Visual Studio 2012 or above will be needed to write code shown in this course
- A PC which is connected to a network, be it your home WiFi
The purpose of this course is to give you the fundamental knowledge of real-time web and how to implement it using Microsoft's suspiciously easy to use library Signal R and probably to make you fall in love with it.
Why take this course?
You should take this course if you're a professional(or student) with some coding experience in the past but lack understanding of what is real-time web and why it is so important to have in your app. You will learn how to implement a real-time web functionality in your app using Microsoft's library SignalR.
Sections 1, 2 and 3 contain very useful information about HTTP protocol inner workings and the difference from TCP Socket connections and anybody can benefit from them - regardless whether they're familiar with C#.Net or not.
Practice beats theory
A lot of courses tend to pile up theory ahead of the real code, this course is going take a minimum theory first approach.
You will learn essentials of real-time web and will start implementing it in your application in under 20 minutes.
We value your time
Your time is precious, so instead of repeating one thing in 4 different ways, we will keep it straight to the point - all videos tend to include only the information that you are going to benefit from - no small talk.
Open Source Project
All source code shown in this course is also made available as a Git repository through GitHub. Students can create their own branches, and push changes back for community benefit.
Who this course is for:
- Take this course if you want to build real-time web apps with SignalR
- Real-time web is used in almost every modern app and using SignalR is the fastest way to add real-time web to new or already existing apps
- This course also covers the basics of TCP socket communications vs standard HTTP communication, but it focuses on building an application using ASP.NET, so this course might not be suitable for students who do not use the .NET framework.
I am currently a back-end developer and in my free time I enjoy creating courses and teaching people all the skills I have acquired both from my work and my personal projects.
My personal goal is to pass all my knowledge on to more people, including you.
