Event: Friday September 15th 2017 at 12 Noon EDT (5PM UK)
This week we’ll be talking with Dan Jenkins. Dan is the founder of Nimble Ape, and a self-described web developer. Despite this fact, he’s a regular speaker at well-established pseudo-telecom conferences, including Astricon, ClueCon and Kamailio World. Heck, he’s made several appearances on past VUC calls. Yet somehow, he remains unfulfilled. What to do? What to do?
Bone weary from travelling hither, tither and yon. Fearful of his ever-improving relationship with the airlines, he comes to a conclusion. “I’ll create a new conference, closer to home in the UK, where it just happens that there are no RTC-focused conferences for web developers, like myself!” Given the lack of an RTC component in events like State Of The Browser by London Web Standards, I’d say it’s a brilliant idea!
Just this week, Dan announced COMMCON 2018. Scheduled for June 25-28, 2018, the conference is described as, “The UK’s only open-source real-time communications conference.” Moreover, Dan has secured what looks to be a fantastic venue in Wotton House, in Surrey, UK.
It’s early days yet, but the game has begun. Join us this week to see what’s being planned. What dreams may come. It’s the opportunity to consider the design of a conference from scratch. The opportunity to seek out even Krankier Geeks, and give them a stage in a beautiful setting.
