Recent advances in transports and frameworks have made it possible to deploy large-scale, low-latency bidirectional communication over HTTP without losing original benefits like scalability and safety. Wenbo Zhu offers a high-level overview of the use cases for enabling bidirectional communication over the Web and over HTTP and provides a detailed analysis of several key scalability issues, including flow control, async APIs, reliability, multihoming support, and safety, as well as a demo that runs a distributed and shared whiteboard application from a browser.
Wenbo Zhu is a software engineer at Google, where he is responsible for Google’s frontend networking frameworks. His current work involves building scalable and robust real-time messaging stacks for internet clients to interact with cloud services. He has also contributed to various web protocol-related standards and open source projects. Wenbo holds a PhD in computer engineering. He is the author of the so-called COLOR algorithm for managing performance and consistency trade-offs of geographically replicated cloud services.
