This week’s Real-Time news
Helmy Giacoman, WebRTC Argentina
Aug 29 2016
Helmy Giacoman sums up some of the conclusions from our previous “Intro to WebRTC” talks at WebRTC Argentina. He talks about the decisions that you need to make when building your application and shows some use cases. If you missed the first videos we posted, Nestor Bermudez gave an introduction to WebRTC concepts and then German Goldenstein showed how to code a basic WebRTC 1-1 video call.

You might recall a few months ago when we interviewed Great.io on the RealTimeWeekly show, where they discussed using the WebRTC Data Channel to distribute the load of content across Peer to Peer Content Distribution Networks. They just raised some investment, as reported in this Tech Crunch article.
