How time flies when you’re having fun… For me the definition of fun was starting BlogGeek.me, deciding to write about WebRTC for the first time and having 10 years fly by.
I had a few updates to write with no specific theme to them. Mostly about things just completed and a few upcoming projects and events. Then it dawned on me that I’ve been at it for a bit over 10 years now (!)
On January 5, 2012 I published the first post on this blog. I just left RADVISION for Amdocs, and wanted to have a place of my own out there that won’t be controlled by any vendor. So I started BlogGeek.me. I didn’t know what I was going to write about, but I did know it will include some 3-4 posts about WebRTC before I move on to other technical issues.
That first WebRTC post? Got published on March 8, 2012. It was about what’s WebRTC. Fast forward 10 years later, and more people today know BlogGeek.me than know me as Tsahi. And in many ways, BlogGeek.me is synonymous with WebRTC articles. Not what I had in mind when I started, but I am definitely happy with where it led me.
Anyways, here are a few updates on my ongoing projects, as well as where to find me.
Free eBook: WebRTC for Business People
Earlier this month, I updated my WebRTC for Business People ebook.
Its last update took place in 2019, before the pandemic, so it really needed to get up to speed with where we are now. I worked on this update in the last couple of months, updating much of the content and replacing many of the showcased vendors.
I’d like to thank Daily for picking up the sponsorship for this work. They’re one of the fascinating CPaaS vendors out there innovating in the domain of UX/UI.
WebRTC Trends for 2022
I just finished my WebRTC Trends for 2022 workshop. Did it twice in parallel to accommodate different time zones and had a goodly sized audience joining live to the 6 hours in total.
During the workshop we went through many topics. I tried covering everything I think is relevant for 2022 when it comes to WebRTC, so that you can prepare properly.
- If you missed this, you can now enroll to it as a course and access the recorded content
- If you want this as a private session in your company, contact me
WebRTC Training Courses
The Advanced WebRTC Architecture course is due for another update.
The above image indicates the numbers for the course at the moment.
Around 15-20 lessons are going to be updated and recorded again – to make sure content is relevant and fresh.
One of the lessons will be dropped with 2-3 new lessons being added.
Until I finish all that work, I am announcing a 10% discount on all courses, ebooks and workshops on my webrtccourse.com website. Just use the coupon code 10YEARS.
If you enroll in the courses now, you’ll have a 1-year access to them which will include all of the upcoming updates.
Philipp Hancke is running the WebRTC Insights with me. This is fun to do, especially with a good friend and partner. We’ve grown the offering in the last few months, adding video release notes interpretation for WebRTC, color coding for issues, etc.
This weekend we worked on getting our subscribers a detailed summary of Facebook’s [email protected] event – so they can focus on what they find relevant in the 5-hour event.
We’ve celebrated a year of WebRTC Insights recently – if you’d like to join our service for the coming year and be updated on everything technical (and non-technical) about WebRTC just let us know.
Enterprise Connect 2022: Here I come!
After two years at home, it is time to pack a bag for the first time and see a plane from the inside.
I will be at Enterprise Connect 2022, taking place in March in Orlando. This will also be my first opportunity to see in real life (!) the people from Spearline who acquired my company, testRTC. I’ll be going there to represent Spearline and showcase testRTC to whoever wants to listen.
If you are there – let me know – I’ll be happy to meet you as well.
Kranky Geek Virtual 2022 Spring
We’re going to have another Kranky Geek event. We plan to have it in April 2022.
At the moment, we’re working on the sponsors and speakers list. If you’re one of those – let me know (we keep a tight ship, so I can’t promise anything).
Here’s for the next 10 years
The last 10 years have been fun. I am actively thinking of what will happen with WebRTC and communications in the coming years. There are some trends that are just around the corner while others are more long term in their nature (web3 anyone?).
Here’s to seeing you in virtual and in person during 2022 and beyond 😎
