 SignalR is one of the latest additions to the ASP.NET web stack. It provides real-time HTTP support for your web applications, but the good news is that SignalR is useful outside of a web browser, too. With a client API that's virtually identical in both the JavaScript and native .NET client implementations, developers only need to learn the SignalR abstraction itself to be able to write cross-platform real-time applications. This session will walk through the process of adding real-time functionality to your Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps. We'll also take a look at the scale-out providers and OWIN hosting capabilities available in the latest release of SignalR.

    I watched first 12 minutes of the talk, double-checked that I am one the right page and left, because to this point the talk is entirely about Angular JS (which I know is now hip, but I dont care, I wanted to learn more about SignalR)

    Sorry to contradict any offended mind (who actually missed the boat completely...) but IMHO this short segment pretty well resumes and explains what SignalR is all about. At least gives a fair good introduction... I personally found the AngularJS approach very smart and simple. Windows Phone 8 part is done in XAML/C# with MVVM, though I guess new Windows Phone 8.1 WinJS 2 will allow to explore new interesting combinations. In my case I already have ;) Thank's Damian I'll keep a close eye on that.
