Today we’ve got articles about face detection, WebRTC gaming, WebRTC in healthcare, and an interview with LiveNinja’s CTO about how they built a mobile WebRTC application to run on an iPad kiosk.
Also, there is an interesting webinar this week that I recommend: Tsahi Levent-Levi will do a webinar on Testing WebRTC applications. I’ve seen his testRTC.com tool before and it’s quite impressive!
As always, if you have tips, event announcements, or suggestions, please contact me directly at Arin@AgilityFeat.com.
