Alberto Gonzalez at Agora’s RTE2020
Our Senior Software Engineer, Alberto Gonzalez Trastoy, was among the many exciting speakers at Agora’s Real-Time Engagement 2020 Conference. His presentation was about what makes building a live video application more complicated than a regular web app. Isn’t WebRTC supposed to handle everything for you? Alberto describes some of the unexpected nuances and challenges a web developer may encounter building real-time engagement and communications applications. This includes networking, interoperability, scalability and security. He also discusses other complexities in building WebRTC applications and offers tools and alternatives to solve them.

Arin Sime Discusses “Impacts of WebRTC on Modern Communication,” 2018
INXPO asked our company’s Founder & CEO, Arin Sime, to present on the “Impacts of WebRTC on Modern Communication” during their first On Air with Ben Chodor series held on March 28th.
In this new series, Chodor, Sime, and four other guests discussed the next best to face-to-face — WebRTC. Real-Time Communications is the final step in making video communication as real as in-person conversations with no latency issues. WebRTC also opens doors for effective and authentic communication.
Guests spoke about how WebRTC is opening up the potential for contextual, real-time communication and data transfer in a number of use cases, like financial services, technology, and healthcare.

David Alfaro at TADSummit 2016
David Alfaro presented the TAD Summit in November 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal, an event targeted at telecom application developers. David presented the app that he, Germán Goldenstein, and Néstor Bermudez (both team members!) built at the New York City location of the Global TADHack in October 2016. During that weekend hackathon, they worked on a virtual healthcare triage bot that integrates SMS messaging, Facebook Messenger, and WebRTC video chat to help a patient set up an appointment with their doctor. Their project won a global TADHack award from two sponsors. In this presentation, David talks more about the concept of this app and multichannel chatbots in general. You can read more about this chatbot and see another presentation by David on the bleeding edge of telecom application development in this blog post.
