Real Time Weekly: Sept 26th 2016

We have a wide variety of articles this week on media servers and WebRTC signaling.  This seems to be on a lot of people’s minds lately, and it’s even more relevant this week since Twilio announced they are acquiring media server Kurento and integrating it into their Voice platform (  That has Tsahi wondering who will acquire Janus now (, and it certainly seems to me that as WebRTC deployments continue to mature we will see more talk about media servers.

In addition to WebRTC topics, we’ve also got a tutorial on Ruby based chat bots and a tutorial on RethinkDB for real time web apps.

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

Thanks for reading!
