How are the Photon and such connecting to Particle to get the updates and receive calls to functions and variable gets? I’m guessing it’s a pull of some sort over http. Is it a websocket or is it doing making a periodic post/get?
Then how do they publish events? I would guess over the same connection.
I’m a software engineer who’s tinkering with this and will probably present this to my team, so being able to speak on this will be handy and I’m just generally curious as well. There’s so much documentation, I looked around, but didn’t find what I was looking for…
