June 6-8, 2017 event is taking shape with speakers and sessions now confirmed

The 2017 New York City edition of the WebRTC summit is coming up fast, and pros in the field of web-based real-time communications may wish to take note.

Per the organizers:

The 8th WebRTC Summit continues our tradition of delivering the latest and greatest presentations within the world of WebRTC. Topics include voice calling, video chat, P2P file sharing, and use cases that have already leveraged the power and convenience of WebRTC.

Attendees will have the chance to learn how to build WebRTC applications from the ground up and discuss business-oriented WebRTC development with colleagues. There will be two full days of technical sessions led by “a rock star conference faculty and the leading WebRTC industry players."

By the time it's over, attendees will have a clearer picture of how to use the technology to simplify browser-to-browser communications and keep Web-originating customer interactions on the Web, simplifying providers' fulfilment of companies' service requirements.

Presenters and panelists will share their knowledge on the future of the data channel; the current state of WebRTC security, reliability, and interoperability, and the practical ways to turn the technology's promise into real applications.

This WebRTC summit will be at the same time and in the same location as Cloud Expo East, of which the summit is a part. Attendees of the WebRTC summit may also visit Cloud Expo, whose website calls it “the single show where technology buyers and vendors can meet to experience and discus cloud computing and all that it entails."

Also at the Javits Center during this time: the Internet of Things Expo, DevOps At Cloud Expo, Containers & Microservices At Cloud Expo, and Big Data At Cloud Expo. All of these events will reconvene once more from Oct. 31–Nov. 2 in Santa Clara, CA, as well.

Nearly 50 “All-Star Speakers" are listed on the conference's website as scheduled for appearance, and many sessions are planned during the conference. Topics for the overall Cloud Expo include:

  1. Enterprise Cloud & Digital Transformation
  2. FinTech (how it's a natural fit
  3. APIs (designing for mobile devices and securing data)
  4. DevOps, Containers & Microservices
  5. Big Data/Analytics
