WebSocket Book on the Horizon: The Definitive Guide to HTML5 WebSocket

We’re thrilled to share the great news that the brand new WebSocket book, The Definitive Guide to HTML5 WebSocket, is in the final stretch. I joined two co-authors recently, who started the project about six months ago at Kaazing.

The book, published by APress and available for pre-orders on Amazon, is the very first one fully dedicated to the WebSocket technology. After a brief intro to the evolution of Web communications, the book covers the WebSocket API and wire protocol in great detail. Then it moves on to describe three different high level business protocols implemented on top of WebSocket: XMPP, STOMP, and RFB used by VNC. You can also learn about security and deployment considerations, as well as best practices.

My co-authors are Vanessa Wang and Frank Salim. Vanessa heads up documentation at Kaazing and brings close to 20 years of technical writing expertise to the team. “On the side”, she is the co-founder and co-organizer of the world’s largest HTML5 user group in San Francisco. Frank was one of the very first engineers at Kaazing and was instrumental in designing and building the Kaazing WebSocket client technologies. Frank is also a co-author of Pro HTML5 Programming (Apress), and is currently working at Google.

The book is scheduled to be published in January 2013.
