Best WebRTC Events and Conferences

This post is a recap of all interesting conferences I found regarding the WebRTC ecosystem. If you want to see and discuss with WebRTC engineers, this is where you have to go!

Introduction

The first things to say about WebRTC events is that, there are some, not a lot of but an umbrella of different kinds of events. Some are proposed by the industry (Telco companies, CPaaS companies), some by the institutes (W3c) and some by the companies or individuals who are experts on the subject.

As usual, attending to these events is a powerful manner to understand, learn and progress on WebRTC as well as to meet wonderful people.

Here is my WebRTC-list:

Note: Order don’t matter.

WebRTC conferences

The conferences in that part focus on WebRTC as the central topic: API, implementation, use cases… Attending to these conferences will help you to understand deeper how to implement, scale and test your WebRTC based solution. They are mainly for developers.

WebRTC Unconference

Motto: Basically, a bunch of geeks getting together, informally sharing experiences while having a good time.

WebRTC ventures

Motto: A webinar series about the latest use cases and technical updates to this popular coding standard for live video

ContentAny topics around WebRTC technical or not. One topic per live
Episodes59 at that time of writing

Even if it is dedicated to one topic only, this is each time a great opportunity to discover something new or to deep dive into a specific WebRTC’s corner.



CommCon

Motto CommCon Virtual is a conference around Real Time Media - whether that’s transporting media (including the data channel) via WebRTC, creating VoIP calls with SIP or something entirely different. We want to hear the stories behind them all; if you’re transporting real time media from A to B we want to hear about it.

I didn’t have the opportunity to attend yet.



VOIP & Real Time Communication conferences

These conferences take place one time or twice per year. They can be seen as traditional events which can last several days with a lot of attendees, in big conferences center. Sponsors coming from the industry often use these conferences to have booths where they make demos. This is the conference where you can grab a lot of goodies from these exhibitors and to meet in real competitors or other companies in the market :-)

Some of these conferences are technical other not. For developers, it could be the opportunity to see real use cases and how WebRTC can be used in different domains such as healthcare, transportation or education. Conferences given by the industry are more interesting for decision makers and technical sales with the chance to discuss with other actors and to feel the trends.

IIT RTC Conference and Expo

(RealTime Communications Conference and Expo. IEEE International Conference)
