Real Time Weekly: October 5th 2015
Greetings from Chicago, and welcome to the 100th issue of RealTimeWeekly! I’m here attending the IIT Real Time Communications Conference, and I spent this last weekend at a TADHack event. Our team won an award (details below), and we’ll be sharing more details from both events and also in next week’s newsletter.
As always, if you have tips, event announcements, or suggestions, please contact me directly at Arin@AgilityFeat.com.

Now that Microsoft Edge supports ORTC, how close are we to a cross browser solution between Edge, Chrome and Firefox? Tsahi explores the idea and points out Edge doesn’t have a lot of traction yet. You should also check out Tsahi’s previous post on the differences between WebRTC and what ORTC brings to Edge.

This past weekend I was at TADHack Chicago with a colleague, and we are staying here all week for the IIT RTC Conference. We’ll be sharing more over the course of the week about the hackathon and conference. I wanted to go ahead and share in this post some more details and a demo of our hackathon entry, which I’m excited to say won a sponsor aware from Telestax. Our heart rate monitor automatically detects a heart attack and notifies loved ones via Telestax, Tropo, and Matrix.org.
