RealTimeWeekly #98


21 Sep RealTimeWeekly #98

We have lots of interesting news and blog posts about WebRTC this week, as people continue to still write about what they learned at the Kranky Geek event. The slides from my talk on UX for WebRTC are here.

Also, it’s not too early to think about 2016 conferences! In fact, Twilio has opened up a call for presenters for the 2016 Signal Conference. I had to miss it this year but I heard great things about the conference, so if you’ve got something interesting to share now is the time to apply to speak!

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

Thanks for reading!
