Introduction to WebRTC Apps by Sam Dutton
WebRTC implements open standards for peer-to-peer communication of audio, video and data. WebRTC APIs have been implemented across Chrome and Firefox on mobile and desktop, meaning there are now over one billion end points.
This session explains how to get started on building a WebRTC app:
Using getUserMedia() to get access to user-generated video and audio.
Integrating WebRTC with Canvas, WebGL and Web Audio.
What is signaling and why do I need it?
Getting to grips with RTCPeerConnection for audio and video communication.
Using RTCDataChannel for peer-to-peer data communication for file sharing, gaming and more.
The easy way: apps, platforms, libraries and abstraction layers.
Security and privacy.

The Evolving WebRTC Ecosystem
WebRTC has been with us for 2 years now. During that time, over 250 vendors have adopted it in different ways, creating a dynamic and evolving WebRTC ecosystem.
In this session, the following questions will be answered:
• How is the WebRTC ecosystem structured?
• What trends do we see within this ecosystem and its dynamics?
• What are vendors doing today with WebRTC beyond the obvious?
