Have you heard about WebRTC? Do you want to try it out? Now's your chance!
AT&T's lead architect for their WebRTC service is holding two free, three-hour coding workshops on WebRTC. AT&T experts will walk through various coding examples then provide help as you go through the lab exercises yourself. The workshops will focus on a carrier-agnostic version of the AT&T WebRTC API and will work with any web app running in Chrome.
Analysts agree that WebRTC is one of the most disruptive telecommunications technologies to hit the street in years. The reason: WebRTC is not just about calling and conferencing apps, though it does those well. The real power is that it allows voice and video communications to easily be added to any web app. Just think of how that could increase the customer engagement of your applications!
Professor Carol Davids from Illinois Institute of Technology's (IIT) Real-Time Communications Lab will describe the lab's WebRTC-related courses and activities. In addition, Illinois Tech representatives will talk about the future of real-time communications and some of the exciting work the university is doing in this area.
An extra perk? Attendees will be entered in a drawing for an Acer Chromebook!
So bring your laptop and join us for an afternoon or evening of learning, coding, socializing, and eating!
