Book Review - WebSocket

WebSocket

Lightweight Client-Server Communications
By: Andrew Lombardi

Book Reivew

For a web programmer, the promise of real-time communication with your web server sounds fantastic. Over the years I have done some research on this here and there, and usually been quickly thwarted. The WebSocket technology seems to put these things into reach. However, a quick search on Amazon for WebSocket books seems to indicate that nobody is that happy with the books that are out there.

I just finished Andrew Lombardi's book on the topic and I am mildly pleased. The thing that would have made this a five start book would have been to take his page 123 (the next to last page of the book) where he mentions "Alternate Server Implementations" into the rest of the book. The nodeJS examples he gives in this book are helpful, but there are a lot of us to operate in other languages/frameworks. I understand the basics of websocket now, but I still can't use it.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.

Most of what is included here are notes to myself. The majority of folks will not find interest in these posts.
