08 Dec RealTimeWeekly #57
I feel like there have been so many great articles and tutorials on real time technologies lately that I’m behind. You’ll see that reflected in the dates on some of these posts this week and next as I continue to catch up! Lots of great stuff today including posts on WebRTC, Twilio, Firebase, Amazon, Pusher, AngularJS, and more.
And if like me, you’re getting excited about the final Middle Earth movie coming up, you might want to check out the Google project about The Hobbit which uses WebGL and WebRTC. You can play it on company time I think since it involves WebRTC.
As always, if you have tips, event announcements, or suggestions, please contact me directly at Arin@AgilityFeat.com.

A very cool tutorial combining SimpleWebRTC, Twilio, Tessels, socket.io, Node.js and more to send pictures when his dog gets on the couch and try to train him not to. Very comprehensive walk through with code and architecture diagrams.

Twilio’s new Network Traversal Service offering means they are making more of a play in the video and WebRTC market.
Jamie Patel, Pusher Blog
Tutorial using the Pusher messaging service and AngularJS for displaying who is in the office currently.

Ah yes, I remember pagers. Why should you learn to build one? Well, not to “party like it’s 1998″ as Ricky suggests, but because it’s a good way to learn to connect Twilio with an IoT device like Arduino. Besides, who knows, maybe pages will make a retro comeback?

Why Realtime.co went to Amazon DynamoDB for its real time data synch.
