WebSockets hold a very special place in web development. They are a very useful solution for bidirectional communication on the web. It definitely feels like one of the most web-y technologies we have. When AWS introduced WebSocket capabilities to the API Gateway, I was thrilled. No more using IoT Core, or hijacking queues, it was a real WebSocket. In this talk, I set up an interactive demo that involves the audience and displaying it on the large screen with high entertainment value. I aim to make all of my talks appeal to multiple levels of developers, from beginners to veterans by showing examples and talking about real world experiences. We will revive WebSockets to their full glory in the serverless age!
