Real Time Web Apps
I’m starting to get serious about real-time web apps. At first I was considering using some of the Perl stuff (Meteor, Twiggy, AnyEvent, etc) to roll my own, but then I started looking around, and found a bunch of other interesting stuff to investigate:
The thing that’s cool about these services is that I can still write my apps using non-async stuff that I love (like DBIx::Class) and still get most/all of the benefits of an async web service.
