Announcing The Annual London Web Boat Cruise!
This year our boat has been refurbished so it's looking awesome! We will start at Westminster Pier at 7pm, cruise both directions of the Thames and arrive back at about 11pm.
I have kept the price very low, at just £12.50 a head. Places will fill up fast, so watch @london_web to get announcements of when spots open. Seats are limited to 120 people.
Pizza will be provided, bring cash for the bar.
- Board "The London Rose" and socialise: 7pm
- Boat departs: 7:15pm
- Enjoy the sights of the city whilst munching pizza: 7:15pm
- Sam Dutton from Google speaking on "Disruptive media: getting to grips with WebRTC": 8pm
- Break to enjoy the sights of either Putney Bridge approach, or Greenwich (depends on voting): 9pm
- Lightning talks by leading web companies and startups on a range of web topics, or scenic chat above deck with sunset in the backdrop and a beer in hand: 9:30pm
- Arrive back at Westminster Pier around 10.45pm - 11pm.
Vote for the direction you’d prefer us to head towards – either Greenwich, Putney or a bit each way. A photo of the boat can be found here and photos from last year can be found here.
Disruptive media: getting to grips with WebRTC - by Sam Dutton from Google
The internet has revolutionised the way we communicate. This year a host of new web technologies look set to transform the way we create, distribute and consume media and information.
These new APIs and standards can democratise and decentralise tools for content creation and communication – for telephony, gaming, video production, music making, news gathering and many other applications.
In particular, WebRTC implements a range of open standards for realtime, plugin-free video, audio and data communication. As Brendan Eich put it: "WebRTC is a new front in the long war for an open and unencumbered web."
In this session, we help you understand the WebRTC APIs and show off some stunning real-world applications.
We'll see you on board! Please watch the map for this venue, it is not correct. A better map is: http://www.londontown.com/LondonPC/sw1a0aa.html
