Join HarperDB & Casne Engineering for this WebSocket deep dive and code review!
Casne Engineering and HarperDB joined forces to provide a rundown on all things WebSockets. WebSocket is a computer communications protocol, providing full-duplex communication channels over a single TCP connection. WebSockets enable messages to be distributed instantly with little overhead, providing a highly efficient and very low latency connection. In this event, we reviewed aspects such as the WebSocket interface, delete function, high resolution, and visualization features. Casne Systems Engineer, Carl Argabright, also explained a case study using WebSocket as the fastest method for collecting high resolution data for analytics.
This event is for developers, engineers, and technology leaders of any skill level.

WebSocket is an important advancement in the scalability of the real-time web. The WebSocket protocol facilitates messages passing between a client and server, here's one overview on how it works. The protocol "enables interaction between a web browser (or other client application) and a web server with lower overhead than half-duplex alternatives such as HTTP polling, facilitating real-time data transfer from and to the server." It has proven to be one of the fastest methods for collecting high resolution / high speed data for analytics and other purposes.
