Interested to hear what this group thinks the future of real-time web (Internet) apps holds?
 
I was recently asked to give a talk covering my thoughts on the past, present and future of real-time technologies at #NYCCamp  in New York at the UN. I recorded the talk.

I'm interested on getting feedback and additional thoughts on what you think the future of real-time web (Internet) technologies are.

Enabling Smart Notifications with +Pusher and +SendGrid a.k.a. avoiding user notification overload

I really like this simple post and demo as it does solve a genuine UX issue. I'm forever being spammed with multiple notifications from services I use such as HipChat and Asana (notifications via Push Notifications, in app notifications and email) and this really simple approach using Pusher demonstrates how the spamming can easily be avoided.

I really like retrospective-style posts. When writing them it's great to answer the question "what have I been doing?" and I also really like reading what others have been up to in order to compare and be inspired.

Hopefully this write up of my 2015 Q1 since rejoining Pusher will be of interest and use to others too:

Back in February 2014 I wrote a list of 10 predictions for realtime web technologies in 2014 (well, it was 10 and 2 bonus items). In this blog post - sorry it's not 1 year on - I'll review those predictions and provide my thoughts on whether they were correct or not.

Libraries  - 
 
window.request - a tongue-in-cheek "brain polyfill" for the strangely named Fetch API: https://github.com/leggetter/window.request

You can now make requests and receive responses. Seems to make sense to me.

To be honest, I don't really expect anybody to use it :) But if you really want to you can install it via bower.

bower install window.request

It also bundles the Fetch API polyfill by GitHub: https://github.com/github/fetch

I had the pleasure of reviewing this post and took a lot away from it. Hat tip to Vivan Govindan Kumar for sharing his thoughts.

Very excited to be talking at +APIStrat
 
We'll be talking Real-Time APIs at API Strategies & Practices Berlin.

1. Why you should offer a real-time API and who’s already doing so.
2. What data should you share and what format should it be in?
3. What real-time transport should you use?
4. What Tools can help? Does anything like RAML, Swagger or API Blueprint existing for real-time APIs?
5. Are there any real-time frameworks that help build an API?
6. How do you secure your real-time API?
7. How do you scale your real-time API?

You can also get a 30% discount for the event via the blog post:
