VUC469 – Silo Free

Event: Friday December 27th, 2014 at 12 Noon EST

Philipp Hancke and Lance Stout join us to talk about WebRTC.

WebRTC marks an important milestone for the web. It presents browsers with real communication and peer-to-peer channels. There are a decent number of signaling tools emerging for WebRTC, but the vast majority of current WebRTC offerings are the same old song and dance: “Here’s our ‘open’ WebRTC platform, library, or toolkit: it’s still yet another Silo.” What if it was simple to build or deploy a video calling service on our own server that could talk to anyone else using fully open and already distributed protocols, without having to reinvent the wheel at all?
