11. Conclusion and Next Steps

In this tutorial, you have learned how to build a basic Node.js powered web application with HOOPS Communicator. While the application we built is basic and straightforward, it can serve as a good point of departure for a more complex system.

From here the application you just built can be extended in a number of ways:

  1. Files could be pulled out of cloud storage before the viewer is spawned.
  2. Ready and disconnect liveliness messages could be pushed to a "monitor" service that tracked the load across multiple machines.
  3. The system could limit the amount of instances that can be spawned on a particular machine.
