WhatRTC? Connecting browsers to the world

A session at Front-Trends 2015

Thursday 7th May, 2015

10:00am to 10:35am (WMT)

Traditionally browsers talk to servers, but what if they could speak to each other? WebRTC is a small set of APIs that make peer to peer communication possible between browsers. Video, audio and data can flow from browser to browser opening up a new set of possibilities for the web.
We’ll take a look at what WebRTC gives you and, importantly, what it leaves out. We’ll cover implementing a simple chat application and speculate over more complicated use cases and examples. I’ll also demo new real-time video infrastructure based on WebRTC.
