22 Jun RealTimeWeekly #85

There’s a lot going on in this issue! We have a couple of posts on the new open source realtime server, an excellent architectural article from Speak, WebRTC security, WebRTC on Android, and Ionic, and more!

I’m also excited to announce that a video course I created on WebRTC has been published by O’Reilly Media! You can read more about it on my development company AgilityFeat’s blog, or go directly to the O’Reilly site to get a copy!

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

Thanks for reading!
