15 spots open - hear Google speak while cruising the Thames - The Annual London Web Boat Cruise
Hi Web Peeps,
I'm pleased to announce that Google are speaking on the Annual London Web Boat Cruise!
Congratulations to the 100 people who have already RSVPd, we are coming close to a full boat of 120.
Sam Dutton from Google will speak on:
Disruptive media: getting to grips with WebRTC
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.
