The PubSubHubbub protocol enables existing RSS and Atom feeds to become real-time streams. It levels the playing field by decentralizing control of real-time content on the web. No company owns the protocol and anyone may participate—the key attributes that have built the web into what it is today. PubSubHubbub is easy to implement by developers, will work at scale, and continues to gain momentum.
This talk will explain how publishers can start providing their content in real-time today. It will cover details of how PubSubHubbub provides a single API for developers consuming vast quantities of information. There will also be a comparison of real-time protocols and specifics on why pushing content is necessary for the future.
