FoWA Miami

Just a quick note that I’ll be giving a workshop on building real-time web applications using Jabber at the Future of Web Apps in Miami, on February 28th. The conference runs from the 28th to the 1st of March, and should be a lot of fun.

We’ve been gradually improving the Jabber stack on Twitter, and we’re now sending millions of messages every day, doing things that just don’t fit into the polling-based world of Atom feeds. There are a ton of extremely awesome things that can be built, and so far we’ve just scratched the surface.

More to come; if I don’t start blogging these things in small pieces, they’ll never come.
