"Why every developer should know WebRTC"
WebRTC is a communication protocol that is built directly into the web browser, allowing for voice and video calls to be made without plugins or native applications. It was originated in 2011 by Google and yet appears to be almost unknown outside its small, well-informed, community.
In this talk, Steven covers the basics of the platform, what it is, what is does (and does not do), as well as covering some of the underlying code.
