Building collaborative applications using the Google Hangouts API

Date: Wednesday April 24, 2013

Time: 5:30pm - 7:30pm
Location: 1253 McGill College, Suite 150, Montreal QC

This presentation will be in English.















Speaker: Richard Dunn


Richard has worked at Google since 2006 on a variety of projects involving real-time communications including Talk, Voice, and Hangouts.  He is currently the lead of the Hangouts API team, which allows non-Google developers to create collaborative applications in the context of group video chats.  Before Google he was a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Washington, Seattle.


Building collaborative applications using the Google Hangouts API.

Hangouts, one of the early killer features of Google+, provide free video conversations for up to 10 people.  The Hangouts API is layered on top, allowing developers to build applications in the context of the hangout.  In this talk, I'll briefly discuss the architecture of a hangout and some of its use cases.  I'll then talk about how our realtime data methods enable collaborative applications like a shared YouTube viewer, and how our multimedia methods turn the video feeds into both output (via graphic effects) and input (via tracking various body parts).

Agenda for this event:
5:30 - 6:00 pm Registration, networking
6:00 - 6:05 pm Welcome and intro
6:05 - 6:45 pm Building collaborative applications using the Google Hangouts API by Richard Dunn
6:45 - 7:00 pm Q&A


Please RSVP to this meetup with your full name, this will significantly speed up the registration process on the day of the event.

Google volunteers wearing Google Montreal t-shirts will be present at this event to answer any questions you may have.

See you there!

Biographie de
Richard Dunn

Richard travaille chez Google depuis 2006 sur une variété de projets impliquant des communications en temps réel, comme Talk, Voice, et Hangouts. Il dirige actuellement  l’équipe APIHangouts qui permet aux développeurs externes de Google de créer des applications collaboratives dans le cadre de conversations vidéo du groupe. Avant d’entrer chez Google, il étaitcandidat au doctorat à l'Université de Washington, à Seattle.


Construiredes applications de collaboration en utilisant l’API Google Hangouts.

Hangouts, l'une des fameuses applications de Google+ qui permet à un maximum de 10 personnes d’avoir des conversations vidéo gratuites. L'API Hangouts est conçue de façon à permettreaux développeurs de créer des applications dans le contexte de cette application. Dans cet exposé, je vais examiner brièvement l'architecture d'Hangout et de certains de ses cas d'utilisation.Je vous parlerai ensuite de la façon dont nos méthodes de données en temps réel permettent aux applications de collaboration comme un compte YouTube partagé, et comment nosméthodes multimédias peuvent transformer le flux de la vidéo à la fois dans la production (avec des effets graphiques) et la contribution (par la localisation des différentes parties du corps).

    Une présentation amusante et instructive de l'API JavaScript Hangout par Richard Dunn. Une motivation de plus pour la maîtrise des APIs et du langage JavaScript. Approche similaire à l'emploi de Google Apps Script.
