August 5, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 9:30 am
InterContinental Chicago,
505 N Michigan Ave
Chicago, IL 60611 United States
ClueCon

That smartphone in your pocket has already replaced your watch, your camera, several volumes of books, whatever music device you may carry, and even in many ways your desktop computer. As technology continues to gobble up and replace legacy devices with ever smaller hardware and ever more capable software, why are we still stuck with a DTMF keypad? As the task of communicating continues to move on to the web and into apps, what will happen to the PSTN. Today…

RubyConf Brasil 2015: Ruby, Javascript and Elixir joining forces for WebRTC

September 19, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm
FECOMERCIO SP,
285, Doutor Plínio Barreto St. - Bela Vista
Sao Paulo, 01313-020 Brazil
http://www.rubyconf.com.br/en/home

This may be RubyConf, but most of us use more than just Ruby to build out our application stack and deliver a compelling product to our users. With WebRTC, this is even more so. We combine a web application, perhaps in Rails, with a rich communications UI (voice and video) in the browser using Javascript and some heavy-lifting on the backend using a range of technologies, including Elixir. In this presentation, we'll talk about why WebRTC is interesting, how it…

IIT Real-Time Communications 2015: The Channel of Last Resort: Why the Telephone is Obsolete and Continues to be Essential

October 6, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Hermann Hall,
3241 S. Federal Street
Chicago, IL United States
ITT RTC

For roughly the last 125 years, the telephone has been the dominant form of real-time communication over distance. However, the last major innovation was to make it mobile, which effectively happened 20 years ago. Prior to that, the major innovation was the telephone keypad, circa 1950. It should be no surprise, then, that people are drifting away from Plain-Old-Telephone-Service and moving toward better alternatives for voice communication. Yet, we all still rely on this “least common denominator” channel of communication…

October 7, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Hermann Hall,
3241 S. Federal Street
Chicago, IL United States
OldPhone

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last 4 digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. This talk is about the impact of technology on identity. Should…

Loews Royal Pacific Resort,
6300 Hollywood Way
Orlando, FL 32819 United States
WebRTC

WebRTC is an exciting new technology, perhaps the most exciting thing to happen to voice communication since the invention of Voice over IP. With WebRTC, we are no longer limited to a disjointed communication experience with poor quality audio on antiquated networks. Now we have the ability to put high-definition audio and video where it will have the most impact: right in line with the business processes that benefit the most from it. This session will present an overview of…

2 Galleria Pkwy SE
Atlanta, GA 30339 United States
Connect.JS

When you want to talk to someone, where do you turn? Skype? Slack or HipChat? Maybe even an old-fashioned telephone? As great (or not) as these are, they all fail in one important way: Context. As developers, why don’t we enable our users to communicate where they are doing everything else, right inside the browser or mobile app The technology to create contextual communications is evolving quickly with exciting technologies like WebRTC. This talk is about how to use WebRTC…
