Dan Burnett & Amir Zmora team-up to provide you with an answer to this
If you are involved with WebRTC these are questions you probably ask yourself once in a while.
How do I follow-up on what’s being worked on in WebRTC standard bodies?
How do I know about these changes ahead of time, prepare for them and take advantage of them?
Dan and I decided it is time to solve this problem for you. We decided to start providing periodic updates so you will know what’s next, what things require more attention on your end so you will not be surprised.
If you are reading this I guess you already know me. If not check out this About page.
Who is Dan?
For most of you, there is no real need to introduce Dan as he is well known in our industry.
Dan is co-author of the most popular WebRTC book. He is also one of the pioneers of WebRTC standardization work, the creator of the first W3C WebRTC draft, current co-editor of WebRTC and Media Capture and Streams specifications.
More about him can be found on his website StandardsPlay.
What will these updates include?
Updates will include information from both W3C and IETF work. Following all the discussions and mailing lists of these bodies is hard. Our updates will be structured based on topics, give a summary of the important things, possible implications and time frame. From there you will be able to decide to further deep dive into the topic or skip.
Updates will be published every month or so depending on activity at the standard bodies.
How is this going to work?
While first updates will be published on this blog, our plan is to launch a dedicated website for this. Launch of this website will take a bit of time but we didn’t want to wait with the information.
We will of course let you know once this website is live.
Is this going to be free?
The answer to this is yes and no. There will be some part that will always be free. We will want to offer a premium service that will give more information and allow for some interaction – questions and answers.
How do I get these updates?
As mentioned before, first updates will be published on this blog, TheNewDialTone so if you are registered for it you are good to go for now. If not you are welcome to register now.
Additionally, we have opened a dedicated list for WebRTC standards updates. All our updates will be sent to this list so feel free to register.
First update is tomorrow so stay tuned.
