Real Time Weekly: May 9th 2016
This week we’ve included a very interesting presentation on Microservices in a Streaming world from Ben Stopford at the QConLondon conference, worth a view.
Speaking of presentations, don’t forget to check out the first RealTimeWeekly Show this Thursday – we’ll be speaking with GretaScript CTO Dennis Mårtensson about their experiences with the WebRTC Data Channel!
I’m also excited to announce a WebRTC event in Argentina that we are hosting June 15th in Buenos Aires. If you’re in the area, join us in person! If you can’t attend, you can look forward to videos from the event later in June.
Finally, the FullStackFest in Barcelona is about to close their Call for Presentations on May 14th, as well as Super Early Bird discount pricing, so check that out in the event listing!
As always, if you have tips, event announcements, or suggestions, please contact me directly at Arin@AgilityFeat.com.
