Abstract:  SignalR is a new technology allowing for “real-time” web based functionality without having to do call-backs or polling as many solutions have had to do in the past. Call-backs and polling mechanisms caused unnecessary traffic and still didn’t achieve real-time communication. We will walk through a discussion of SignalR and how it can be useful in your development efforts and walk through some sample code utilizing SignalR.
