RealTimeWeekly #57

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

Thanks for reading!

Go Old School: Build a Pager Using Arduino, Node.js and Twilio

Ricky Robinett, Twilio Blog

Nov 24 2014

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?
