WebRTC Road Show: Communications App Development Made Easy

August 31, 2016

Following the trend towards making technology simpler, more user-friendly, and more intuitive, the communications world is in the midst of a revolutionary change, where developing applications is moving from an arduous task of writing code to a much simpler GUI-based process. The timing couldn’t be better, as the need to bring new real-time communications applications to market faster, make them more scalable, and able to integrate them into other services, apps, and websites, is creating havoc for those who aren’t prepared.

For those that have taken time to follow and understand what’s happened in the last few years around WebRTC and communications APIs, the foundation is built for leveraging this new programming methodology. Furthermore, this new methodology extends application development beyond traditional programmers directly to the millions of web developers around the world.

If you’re looking to add one-way, outbound communication to provide enhanced customer communication – perhaps to deliver an automated voice or text message to customers letting them know their pizza order is on its way – with WebRTC, you can.  Or, you may want to enable two-way communication between your customers and local service reps – so your customer can call a repairman directly from your app to find out how far away he is – WebRTC lets you do it.  Maybe, you’ve built an internal messaging and collaboration app to help your staff, 90 percent of which is remote, to work more effectively as a team, and you want to add conferencing capabilities to it. Again, WebRTC is your answer.  Or, as a retailer, you have collected thousands of product reviews on your site, and you’d like to make some of those reviewers available on a voluntary basis to prospective purchasers, directly through your product portal. You guessed it, WebRTC.

Whether you’re an expert telecom developer or a new web developer, getting started with communications APIs and WebRTC, Dialogic has partnered with TeleStax to get you all the information you need to succeed, throught their WebRTC and Cloud Communications Developer Workshop series. Dialogic has been in the communications application business for three decades, and TeleStax, an open source CPaaS platform that allows businesses of all sizes to leverage the enterprise-grade communications services to develop applications.

With instruction from three experts in application development, attendees will leave ready to bring new features and capabilities to their own websites and applications. Instructors include Michael Lazar, VP of Telecom, DataArt; Vince Puglia, Developer Advocate, Dialogic; and Jean Deruelle, Co-founder and CTO, TeleStax

The workshop series is currently scheduled to make stops in the New York/New Jersey area; Santa Clara, California; Chicago, Illinois; Tokyo, Japan; and Paris, France.
