-Async signaling library for .NET to help build real-time, multi-user interactive web applications
+# ASP.NET SignalR [![Build Status](\(id:bt2\)/statusIcon)](
+ASP.NET SignalR is a new library for ASP.NET developers that makes it incredibly simple to add real-time web functionality to your applications. What is "real-time web" functionality? It's the ability to have your server-side code push content to the connected clients as it happens, in real-time.
## What can it be used for?

it dead easy and handles all the heavy lifting for you.
