WhatRTC? Everything you need to know about modern web communications.

Traditionally browsers and mobile applications communicate via servers, but what if they could speak to each other? WebRTC is a small set of APIs that make peer to peer communication possible between browsers and mobile applications. Video, audio and data can flow from browser to browser, from app to app, opening up a new set of possibilities for modern communications.

We’ll take a look at what WebRTC gives you and, importantly, what it leaves out. We’ll take a look at implementing a simple chat application and speculate over more complicated use cases and examples.
