Real-Time Capabilities in ASP.NET Core Web Applications Beyond (Or Besides) SignalR

By Tomasz Pęczek

Elevator Pitch

Today’s users attention span is very short, so our applications need to be as real-time as possible. This talk focuses on native real-time technologies in the context of ASP.NET Core to give you tools to achieve that.


As the title suggests, this talk won’t be about SignalR (it might be mentioned, but that’s all). It will walk through native technologies like WebSockets, Server-Sent Events and Push API based notifications. It will show how to use them, compare them and suggest when to use which by exploring their strong and weak sides.
