Introducing Learn WebSockets

Looking for a way to improve your web development projects? We'll show you how with our new course: Learn WebSockets.

WebSockets is a powerful communication protocol you can use to achieve persistent, bidirectional communications between servers and clients. You can find it in many applications that update in real-time, like live sports trackers, chatrooms, and your favorite multiplayer games.

In our new course, we'll show you how to use WebSockets and HTTP to enable greater connectivity and a wide range of other benefits.

Who is this course right for?

Learn WebSockets was designed for learners who have taken Learn Node.js or already know how to create basic HTTP servers and want to learn how to implement a WebSocket client/server application.

WebSockets is a popular technology, so this course is also great for anyone who wants to give themselves a competitive edge in the job market.

What will you learn from the new course?

WebSockets is a critical element of web development, and learning how to use it will deepen your understanding of HTTP and client-server interactions. By the end of the course, you'll be able to:

  • Explain the concepts underlying the WebSocket protocol.
  • Establish a persistent client/server WebSocket connection.
  • Send client-to-server and server-to-client messages.
  • Implement the server broadcast pattern.
  • Implement custom message types.
