WebSockets, IBM i, and Watson - HTML5 gave us WebSockets. IBM gave us Watson. Did you know we can easily access Watson from IBM i for our own business purposes? We can and it is sooooo stinkin' cool. Attend this session to learn how you can call on Watson from IBM i using Node.js. You will learn about what Watson is and available APIs. How WebSockets work to communicate from browser to IBM i and from IBM i to Watson. And finally, learn how the Node.js socket.io library makes it dead simple to do WebSockets.
