Last night I had a lot of fun presenting to the Silicon Valley Realtime meetup on WebRTC. It’s a talk that I’ve given a few times recently and the interest from attendees always shows how compelling WebRTC is and how disruptive it can be to real time communication applications.

Links from the Presentation

Demo 1: Grabbing a profile pic with GetUserMedia

Demo 2: Sample medical app with 2 party video chat


This example application is explained in depth in my O’Reilly Media video course on WebRTC.

This demo is also explained in depth on my guest post at WebRTCHacks on the DataChannel.
