We’re pretty damn excited for an event this Friday in San Francisco called Forward JS. The event brands itself as more than the usual tech conference — it’s a rally for innovation. The best and the brightest of the industry will surely be there, and we want to make sure we’re doing our part in evangelizing WebRTC to the masses; it’s a technology the world should know about. It actually surprises us that we’re going to be the only WebRTC company there sponsoring the event!
On top of a slew of wonderful workshops, the core of our excitement can be attributed to Forward JS’s list of phenomenal speakers. We’re very interested in Guillermo Rauch’s talk about Socket.IO; he’s actually the technology’s creator. It’d be interesting to learn how he sees the world of real-time communication evolving and what we can expect in the upcoming future. I’m sure much of what Guillermo will talk about can be gracefully applied to WebRTC’s signaling protocols.

Our next person of intrigue is Phil Leggetter
with his talk on building frontend web apps that scale. It looks like he’s going to focus on training, perhaps even building a live app onstage. These concepts are absolutely vital to deploying a highly scalable WebRTC app, especially if you’re using a highly intensive JS WebRTC client API, and especially
if you’re rolling out a frontend client of your own. This is a must go to if you’re interested in creating real-time web applications!
Bonus level: Christian Heilmann
, a developer evangelist at Mozilla. We love everything that Mozilla does for the Open Web movement, and it’d be very rewarding to learn exactly how we got to this point and what further steps are needed to make the Internet more wide and open to millions (and billions) more. We are the innovators of the future, so we’re in charge of making the web faster, safer, and overall — better, for those who have been with us and for those to come. It’d be also very interesting to pick Mozilla’s mind on their vision of the future of WebRTC.
So stop by our booth and learn a thing or two about the bleeding edge web technology that is WebRTC. We’ll do our best to enlighten you. We hope to do our part in evangelizing this technology so the best and the brightest (people like you) can have the knowledge and power to unleash the next wave of cost-effective and revolutionary communication websites and apps across all devices. Let’s change the way we communicate.
We’re looking forward to seeing you at Forward JS!
