A common use case for real-time messaging between web clients is to keep something in synch. For example, in the Sensei tool that we built for one of our clients, each remote participant in an agile retrospective should be able to see the votes and comments made by other remote participants, and a moderator needs […]

Toying with a World Cup second screen experience

This is a very stressful month for me, because I’m trying to balance work, family time, and World Cup viewing time.
