This weekly group is dedicated to grokking the real-time capabilities provided by HTML5 and the latest Browsers (Chrome + Firefox).

WebRTC is a revolutionary new browser capability that gives any web developer the ability to create peer-to-peer video/audio/file-sharing capabilities. It's a new frontier in web land. The opportunity to make long-lasting open source contributions, and truly awesome apps, is huge.

Some of the associated technologies we're looking to master together:

  • Node.js
  • Javascript (front-end + back-end)
  • Websockets
  • HTML5 & getUserMedia (gUM)
  • Web Video/Audio peer-to-peer processing
  • MongoDB
  • Single Page Web Apps

This is a co-learning hack/study group. The current book we're reading is the only one available on Amazon on WebRTC: http://amzn.to/1ayM4PI
