Following the “WebRTC Rockstars Tour”(TM) in Asia last winter, there has been an incredible amount of requests coming from developers, individuals and companies of all sizes to go beyond a meet up and to organise a full-fledged Korean WebRTC conference.
This week IETF is in town! It’s rare enough that the organizers of JSConf.asia last year gave us a slot to present the standardisation process, and why it was so important to participate. Moreover, one only get better by learning from the bests, and all the internet experts are at IETF. If you’re really serious about internet technology, as an engineer or as a team leader you go and send your team learn with the best, even more so when there is no plane ticket to buy or hotel cost associated. Since IETF publishes the list of attendees, we took the time to extract the list of attendees, to see the braves.
This is winter again and The IETF is coming to Asia. For this very special 100Th edition of the IETF, Singapore is going to be the Host.
Starting November 11th, Internet Technology experts will be in town to define the future of the Internet, the foundation of the Web.
As we told the local enthusiasts last year at JSConf.asia, this is a great and rare opportunity, and we, being based in Singapore, wanted most of the local to benefit from this as much as possible.
Sunday November 12th, 1:45pm, there will be a free tutorial to webrtc By Dan Burnett and Myself. State of the standard, state of the implementation in all browsers will be presented.
On Wednesday 15th at night, PayPal and SingaporeJS were nice enough to sponsor the webrtc rockstar event with In addition to the two above usual suspects, Lorenzo Miniero, the founder and chairman of Meetecho which provides the open source Janus media server, and Jordan Baucke, CTO of Evasyst an e-gaming state-up for Irvine California
Only lorenzo really is a rockstar (you can tell by his style and his power walk), and he was kind enough to prepare a logo for us.
Eventually, the rockstar tour will have two more asian dates:
We will be in gangnam district, Seoul on Friday 17th,
both the latest dates will be with another webrtc Rockstar: Kranky from KrankyGeek!! He will join us on stage to present the latest about Machine Learning, Virtual Reality, and Artificial Intelligence applied to Real-Time-Communication!
All of those events are free, and good opportunity to mingle and get to know each other as well as to learn from the seniors. Do not hesitate to send all of your team members (even wearing your company t-shirts) to enjoy with us like the Temasys Chairman did last time. The more the merrier.
Dr. Alex, from San Francisco, W3C Technical Plenary Meeting.
As announced to a happy few at webengine hackfest last month, Centricular just released a brand new implementation of WebRTC on top of GStreamer. For those who do not know Centricular, it s a small company specialising in Media and GStreamer. They were part of the OpenWebRTC Team, under contract by Ericsson, and also part of the webrtc in webkit project.
Safari Tech preview 41 is out. As usual with the tech preview, with respect to webrtc, it’s what is not in the release note that is interesting. This time, lots of announced automation improvement were delivered. Here is a little tour of what makes STP 41 great for webrtc and testing.
For three years in a row what has now become the biggest RTC conference in the East took place in Beijing. For three years in a row, the audience almost doubled to slightly less than 3,000 attendees, and the number of high-level speakers increased as well.
Today, for the first time since the blink / webkit fork, the Apple and Google WebRTC teams are having a working session over lunch, facilitated and in presence of yours, truly, Dr Alex. How could that possibly happen? What does that mean for WebRTC? What’s next. Let’s look a little bit into all that.
The cat is now out of the bag: youenn fablet is going to present part of its WebRTC effort, actually WebRTC in webkit, during a public presentation! For some happy few, this was known and prepared for some time now, and some readers of this blog and Korean WebRTC group member were looking forward to it.
Since the announcement of WebRTC in safari, a lot of blog posts, webinars, and meet-up have surfaced. That was not a surprise for anyone really. I have been writing about webrtc in webkit and Safari for years now, so I was in no hurry, and waited untill the noise level went down. While people where quickly to point the (perceived) mistakes and missing pieces, I do not think anybody has done a real overall comparison between existing browsers see, overall, which was most webrtc-compliance, i.e. future proof. This post is trying to address this.
There are a lot that would like you to believe that you can only be successful if you are in the silicon valley. While there are undeniably huge successes there, more and more Asia is innovating and raising to the level of their American counterpart. Today, a Singaporean CPaaS company, “WaveCell” announced a successful Series B. Let’s see what we can learn from them.
