TokBox is happy to announce our first meetup of 2015. This month we will be hearing from Josh Carpenter, Virtual Reality Researcher at Mozilla, who will be talking about bringing the open web to Virtual Reality.
The Mozilla VR team believes that the attributes that define the web—interoperability, accessibility, low friction publishing, freedom of navigation, etc—are sorely needed in the emerging modern VR platform, and that the creative potential of the combination of web + VR is unprecedented. In this talk, Josh will focus on a how we might build a new generation of real time collaboration experiences, powered by technologies like WebRTC and WebVR.
Here at TokBox we are preparing for the fifth WebRTC expo, taking place in San Jose next week from 18-20 November.
Since the last WebRTC expo in June, there has been a lot of action in the market;
With our fourth WebRTC Conference & Expo now a week behind us, we wanted to take some time to reflect on the event. There was never a dull moment for Team TokBox in Atlanta. We gave a keynote address, participated in several panel discussions, gave a live demo of our video driver and manned our bustling booth complete with a Bridgestone Golf B-FIT kiosk.
Obama Called. And We Responded.
Yesterday President Obama kicked off the Hour of Code Campaign for Computer Science Education Week 2013 with a inspiring video calling for every American to learn code.
Here at TokBox we are excited to help! In this post we will help you jump the next hurdle.
After learning the basics of web and/or mobile programming, most people get bogged down by technical complexity and knowledge.
Say, after building your first app, you want to add a feature to let users video chat with each other. Learning about real time video streaming itself, let alone implementing it, can take months! This is why we highly recommend playing with platforms and APIs after learning the basics of web/mobile programming. You will be able to put together interactive apps that you never thought were possible. For example, with just basic web and/or mobile programming knowledge, you can add live video chat/streaming to your web or mobile app with the right library.
There are many platforms out there that let you build technically difficult apps with basic programming knowledge. Here is a short list of our favorites that we have worked with at various hackathons. Because of these platforms, developers were able to use them and build amazing applications within 24 hours.
With last week’s WebRTC Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, California coming to a successful conclusion, the second big WebRTC event of the year is now behind us. Sure, there are other WebRTC-related conferences – the IIT RTC conference in Chicago, the WebRTC Summit at Cloud Expo, next month’s WebRTC 2013 conference in Paris - but with what looked like 700 people in attendance, the twice-annual WebRTC Conference and Expo is the big one.
