From the abstract:

In this talk we’ll look at the state of the art in building real-time Web applications. Based on actual projects such as a real-time monitoring console, we’ll look at Bayeux, Web Sockets, and similar approaches for pushing real-time data to the browser, data management and event-driven UI updates with Backbone.js, decoupling background tasks and calculations using Web Workers, rendering real-time charts with Smoothie, and more. We’ll look at both the latest Web standards, and fallback options for maximum portability. You’ll leave with the tools you need to build a responsive, real-time Web application.
