WebRTC Summit Extends Cloud Expo Innovation

First International WebRTC Summit November 6-7 at Santa Clara Convention Center

The 1st International WebRTC Summit is being produced by SYS-CON Media and WebRTC Journal on November 6-7, co-located with the 13th International Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley.

Cloud Expo continues to ride the leading edge of global IT, offering the most current topics in a comprehensive way. WebRTC is the latest superhot topic emerging from Cloud Expo, and emerging from the world's of open-source development and cloud computing worldwide.

The distinguished lineup of expert speakers will focus on topics such as:

  • WebRTC for telcos - is there a real business opportunity?

  • Is Skype a WebRTC Killer, or is WebRTC a Skype killer?

  • Peer-to-peer use of WebRTC

  • RTCPeerConnection

  • Integrating WebRTC with Web Audio

  • The Voice-Enabled Web

  • P2P communication in the browser

  • The monetization of WebRTC

There is a Call for Papers Open through Friday, October 11, 2013.

Latest Innovation
As with all great new technologies and approaches, it is already the result of a few years of dedicated effort by an enthusiastic developer community. The WebRTC mission is deceptively simple: To enable rich, high quality RTC applications delivered to browers through Javascript APIs and HTML5.

Taking an open, Web-based API approach and employing standardized protocols, the WebRTC effort already encompasses Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera.

As the trend away from downloaded apps and environments in this space continues - including the ongoing diminution of Flash - the WebRTC movement is transforming VoIP, video chat, and peer-to-peer environments.

Now, under the auspices of Cloud Expo, the 1st International WebRTC is delivering the top WebRTC technical experts and contributors in a free event. Join the following rockstar panel over two days in Santa Clara this November!

CloudEXPO Stories
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
Here to help unpack insights into the new era of using containers to gain ease with multi-cloud deployments are our panelists: Matt Baldwin, Founder and CEO at StackPointCloud, based in Seattle; Nic Jackson, Developer Advocate at HashiCorp, based in San Francisco, and Reynold Harbin, Director of Product Marketing at DigitalOcean, based in New York. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lose a lot of visibility into these containers resulting in operational blind spots and even more haystacks to find the presumptive performance issue needle.
