    You should also have to concentrate on an asynchronous server framework like tornado or node.js, otherwise the topic will be incomplete.

      @Raviteja Websockets/Comet are independent of frameworks or runtimes you choose. These are protocols with specs. You dont really need an async framework.

      Ajax Push Engine & Cometd have existed long before node.js came along. This talk is about the ease of adding realtime communication to everyday applications without worrying about browser support.

      PS: also has a protocol & has servers implemented in python & ruby too.
