Well said. That's exactly what I'm trying to do with this book (I wrote it). This is a very practical book in that you should be able to start implementing these technologies at scale in any modern browser and working with your apps existing ecosystem.

While I would have loved to put in a chapter on web sockets, It wasn't practical in terms of time or practicality. However, the 2nd edition (fingers crossed) will definitely cover it.

Hi, Ted Roden here, author of this book.

I definitely spend a lot of time talking about that issue in the book.The reviewer (understandably) didn't write about all of the pros/cons and content in the book.

I talk about how many servers (apache) are really bad at keeping these types of connections open and suggest using servers that were specifically designed for this (tornado). I also spend a while talking about how to get them all working together so you don't have to rearchitect everything just to get something set up.
