Minnebar Podcast: Web 2.0 in the Real World

Posted by Nick Sieger Fri, 12 May 2006 03:25:00 GMT

In this podcast from minnebar 1, Jamie Thingelstad, CTO of marketwatch.com, describes a real-world, scalable application of asynchronous javascript that uses an event-driven model rather than polling.

I enjoyed the session and think it’s worth a listen -- there are some interesting approaches discussed, including a back-off strategy that helps give the server a chance to tell its javascript clients to not hit it so hard when it’s under duress.

Download the podcast here, or put my feed in iTunes or another podcatcher to have the podcast downloaded for you. I should be posting more minnebar podcasts in the coming days.
