With Hong Kong being a major startup hub with extremely high mobile device usage/penetration, we’re seeing a continued rise in the number of entrepreneurs and VC’s developing and delivering hybrid and native mobile application products to market. With this comes continued demand for mobile application developers and increasingly those with experience in using ‘websockets’ in cross-platform development.
Our Senior Tech Consultant, Ken lam spoke to Gabriel Theodoropoulos on this subject. Gabriel is a seasoned technologist, who loves sharing his knowledge in iOS technologies.
“Thankfully here it comes into the play a really handful framework that takes charge of all the connection issues behind the scenes, and makes the socket-based communication a real piece of cake. It’s called Socket.IO.”
“When a message is sent to that port by a server, the recipient clients will instantly receive it, so they can take any further actions immediately.”
“Even though Socket.IO has been designed mostly for web applications, it offers a library for iOS that can be integrated into a project in no-time at all.”
“In my opinion your best option when you need real-time solutions.”
Do you have experience in working with websockets? If so Ken would love to hear from you. For iOS/JS development opportunities across APAC, please contact [email protected]
