At this month’s TechTok, Philipp ‘Fippo’ Hancke, &yet’s WebRTC lead and industry veteran, explains everything you need to know about how to handle failures with WebRTC.
‘If you’re going to launch a WebRTC powered service for financial gain, then you need to have done everything within your power to ensure it works reliably across as many cases as possible.’ Chris Koehnke.
Philipp knows just how to do this so we will leave it to him to tell you. If you want to learn more about how to fail gracefully with WebRTC you can watch a video of Philipp’s full presentation here:
One of the fun things about running a communications platform company is watching new use cases emerge as companies and developers innovate using our technologies.
Several months ago, we began to notice a new trending mode of use of WebRTC in the area of Field Service enablement. I’ve also heard people describe it as remote workforce applications, or even fleet management systems.
The key concept is that a field worker – someone who goes onsite to a customer location to effect a repair, make an inspection, or deliver or pick up products, uses some sort of a computer or electronic device as an essential tool for that onsite visit. Increasingly these devices are smartphones or tablets.
It’s predicted that by 2018, 70% of mobile workers will use a tablet or a hybrid device that has tablet-like characteristics. (Source: RapidValue Solutions)
At this month’s TechTok on May 21, Philipp ‘Fippo’ Hancke, &yet’s WebRTC lead and industry veteran will tell us everything we need to know about how to handle failures with WebRTC.
TokBox is excited to be sponsoring Video Hack Day in New York this Saturday (May 9), an event dedicated to all things video. At a time when more and more exciting video apps and services are popping up, we are looking forward to going along to see what the community can come up with next.
We’ll be sending Ankur along to the event who will offer up a couple of OpenTok hack ideas as well as answers and advice on the day. If you’re up for a challenge, why not think about WebRTC powered augmented or virtual reality apps? Or adding a live video chat to a media site? We’ll be awarding a GoPro for the best OpenTok hack so give it a go!
Hype used to be what every new app developer wanted, until it became a euphemism for flash in the pan. Meerkat and Periscope are so hot right now, as evidenced by the breathless fan boy bloggers and the equally breathless declarations of their death (in particular Meerkat’s).
This current iteration of native mobile live video streaming has captured the attention of the media and also the general public. Is this a game-changing and sustainable phenom, or a flash in the pan?
