Real Time Weekly: April 18th 2016

Lots of interesting content this week covering real time messaging with Lightstream, PubNub, Pusher and WebSockets, plus lots of WebRTC updates and some Beacon, IoT, and bots thrown in. Last week was also interesting with the Facebook F8 conference going on all of Facebook’s announcements about Messenger integrations and more Facebook Live video integrations. As a TokBox post put it last week, Live video broadcast will never be the same again! (Link to this . You’re on the cutting edge of the latest in real-time development news in this issue!

We’re also adding a couple new events to the listing. The Full Stack Conference in Barcelona has opened a call for Presenters, and NodeConf is coming to Argentina in November. Sounds to me like a couple of great opportunities to combine your love of development with some travel!

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