SignalR, Microsoft’s latest addition to the web development technology stack, is a framework that facilitates the creation of amazing real-time applications, such as online collaboration tools, multiuser games, and live information services, whose development has traditionally been quite complex .
This book provides a complete walkthrough of SignalR development from scratch , but it will also deal with more advanced topics. The idea is that after reading it you will be familiar with the possibilities of this framework and able to apply it successfully in practice in the creation of real time systems of any size.
It can also be used as a reference manual because, although not exhaustively, it includes most features of practical application in the development of SignalR systems, and it provides the bases for fully mastering them .
Who should read this book The aim of this book is to help developers understand, know, and program SignalRbased components or applications. It can be of special interest to developers who need to make use of real-time immediacy in existing applications or who want to create new systems based on this paradigm.
