Joining #WebRTCStandards to provide the implementation viewpoint

As some of you already know, I’ve been granted the privilege to join the great team of WebRTCStandards From last week on.

One of my goal always as been to evangelize WebRTC, and to be a trustworthy source when it comes to both Specifications and browsers implementation status.

When I came up with the idea of a webRTC plugin and implemented it as part of a bet with my then Boss, the goal was to remove a barrier for webRTC adoption. While it happened quite a few years back, that’s the main reason that company is (still) being mentioned today.

It was right away coupled with a personal project with Ericsson R&D to bring webrtc in webkit (and hopefully safari and iOS) to, ironically, remove the need for a plugin in Safari. That project is being successful, with apple picking up on the work and finishing safari only parts to support GetUserMedia, while we engaged the help of Igalia, to push the PeerConnection Implementation to webkit. Other webkit-based Browsers already interoperate with chrome!

Being part of all the corresponding standard committees (and ORTC Community Group) like my friend Dan, I go through every and all API proposals and understand the reasons behind the current specs, even if admittedly less well than Dan 🙂 He wrote *the* book.

Moreover, being principal architect for all of Citrix GoTo products, I have visibility on all browsers and stacks implementations, and am involve on their testing in multiple environment and use cases  everyday, even though admittedly, less well than Philip Hancke (a.k.a. master bug hunter) 🙂

So when Dan asked me to join the #webRTCstandards team, whose objective is to make informations about standards changes available to all products manager out there in a way that would be both understandable and useful for them to understand, plan and leverage the technology better, I was excited.

This next Monday will be my first live, and I m going to speak about H.264 and VP9 codecs in webrtc and browsers, focussing on practical details about how to enable them and test them. There will be a lot of time for Q&A as well. The webinar is free, so do not hesitate to register, and to list the questions and topic you would be interested beforehand in the chat window.
