Building a chat room application is easy. Building a scalable, real-time chat app can be challenging. You have to deal with spinning up and configuring servers to deal with fluctuating numbers of users, as well as cross platform and device compatibility. So why bother spending time dealing with these hurdles when you can easily bypass them and focus on your real-time chat app?

Real-Time Chat App Feature

VMware’s Craig Conover set out to build and deploy a basic chat room application in under 15 minutes. How? Using three things:

  1. VMware‘s WaveMaker: you’ll use this as your software development platform
  2. Cloud Foundry: you’ll use this to deploy your app on a scalable platform
  3. PubNub: PubNub takes care of all the real-time messaging

Who knew creating real-time, scalable chat apps was so easy?
