BrowserSocket CodeCamp

CodeCamps are a series of courses where students form small groups to work around some of the latest cool stuff. Last year this was QT, this year: BrowserSocket. A new protocol called WebSockets has been introduced at the IETF and the W3C to simplify and optimize bi-directional, long-lived connections between the server and the user’s browser. The CS department and HIIT have jointly researched ways to embed servers in web pages. As a result, we have created a prototype called BrowserSocket, which allows the development of ad-hoc peer-to-peer systems that run transparently from within the user’s browser. The development of BrowserSocket is part of a larger on-going research effort aimed at making client-side technologies available for cloud software.
