WebRTC: Unicorns, Narwhals and The Real-Time Web

You probably don’t know WebRTC as much as you think. I’m not surprised. WebRTC is both amazing and terrifying.

No real standards exist between browser vendors. So how do you integrate WebRTC the right way? Even then, WebRTC is but one ingredient to a successful real-time web recipe.

This talk discusses lessons learned in the trenches developing with WebRTC. In particular, I discuss the bad parts of WebRTC and why it is still so crucial to business success. The talk further suggests how to get WebRTC solutions right and build a multidisciplinary software engineering team in the process.
