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.

  • Understand the importance and the challenges for real-time web functionality
  • Understanding the difference between real-time web and standard HTTP protocol communication

What is the target audience?

  • Take this course if you want to build real-time web apps with SignalR
