Real-time Web with the new Salesforce streaming API

motif

Its about time the Web became more event-driven.  We have had AJAX for many years enabling events between server and browser, but on the backend we are still polling data. With the explosion of public APIs from SaaS, Social Media and Infrastructure Apps, more and more applications are written by composing web APIs. Developers often need to call a API to get data updates, only to find that nothing has changed. Streaming APIs provide a more elegant solution to polling allowing developers to subscribe to changes they are interested in.
