RealTimeWeekly #31

09 Jun RealTimeWeekly #31

June is a big month for WebRTC events, as Dean Bubley reminds us in his run down of all the June events going on. In particular, make sure you check out The Kranky Geek WebRTC show at Google in San Francisco on Friday June 27th – it’s free and led by some great minds in the WebRTC space.

I made the fatal mistake of scheduling vacation time in June, but we’ll bring you the best coverage of all these events even from my own vacation. Stay tuned over the next few weeks for lots of updates on real time technologies!

One correction to last week’s issue: We incorrectly listed the upcoming TADSummit as October when it is actually going to be November 12-13 2014.

As always, if you have tips, announcements, or suggestions, please contact me directly at

Thanks for reading!
