There are a bunch of WebRTC events coming up and I guess we like lists. We thought it would be good idea to take our internal event lists and post them. We did some research to see what other events were out there and found a bunch more. Text tables are boring, so we spruced up the data presentation a bit and BAM! We now have a WebRTC Event Directory.
WebRTC is a hot topic that will be covered in many long-running web and telecom industry events. To be included here we require the WebRTC to be a specific topic area or track that gets more than a nominal focus if it is part of a larger event. Running special pre or post-event workshops dedicated to WebRTC seems to be a common trend.
There have been several locally-focused WebRTC-focused meet-ups too. These tend to be short and inexpensive (usually free). Meetup.com is a great place to look for these. We’ll add more of these as they come up.
We are only including live, meat-space events for now. There are many live & pre-recorded webinars out there that are not included (yet).
Here is a quick review of some of the fields we have included beyond the obvious event name, date, and location:
|WebRTC %||The percentage of the event dedicated to WebRTC. This is meant to help illustrate if WebRTC is the main event topic or just a peripheral element.|
|Business||Non-technical content, usually covering industry trends, predictions, segments, and other topics related to the business of using and developing WebRTC applications/services.|
|Technical||Deeper-dive content oriented at developers and those who are hands-on with the technology|
|Telco||The event has significant content on subjects that are the most critical to traditional telecommunications service providers|
|Web||The event has significant content on subjects that are the most critical to web-oriented businesses and web developers|
|Enterprise||The event has significant content on subjects that are the most critical to enterprises|
|Personal||The event content is oriented at individuals looking to learn more about WebRTC for their own carreer development (as opposed to the others categories which assume someone is attending on behalf of a larger organization)|
|Fee||A rating on how much the event costs for an individual to attend. This is just a rough comparison based on the entry level event to the price. In most cases prices can range depending on ticket purchases of other co-located events, group discounts, etc.The symbols roughly correspond to $USD values as follows:
Price is not an indicator of value – good or bad.
|Discount||webrtcHacks||We will stick relevant notes about our involvement in the event here – like discounts for our readers.|
What’s up the ads?
webrtcHacks is a media sponsor of many of these upcoming events. In many cases they have provided special discounts for our readers. Click on the “Discount” link or go the link under “Events” in our main menu for details.
As part of these media sponsorships the webrtcHacks logo should show up on the event page and other materials. In exchange we agreed to show some banner ads to help them advertise. We think the small amount of page space and the minor distraction from our developer-oriented content is a small sacrifice for some great discounts for our readers – hopefully you agree.
We only put 2013 events in the list for now, but we’ll start adding 2014 events soon.
We will be at many of these events and plan to do some event write-ups too.
