In an effort to make our APIs more accessible and easy to use, we’ve spent some time improving all six of our server SDKs. The OpenTok Server SDKs provide a convenient way to to interact with the OpenTok REST API in a variety of languages. Please note that these enhancements will not break your implementation should you choose to upgrade.
Obama Called. And We Responded.
Yesterday President Obama kicked off the Hour of Code Campaign for Computer Science Education Week 2013 with a inspiring video calling for every American to learn code.
Here at TokBox we are excited to help! In this post we will help you jump the next hurdle.
After learning the basics of web and/or mobile programming, most people get bogged down by technical complexity and knowledge.
Say, after building your first app, you want to add a feature to let users video chat with each other. Learning about real time video streaming itself, let alone implementing it, can take months! This is why we highly recommend playing with platforms and APIs after learning the basics of web/mobile programming. You will be able to put together interactive apps that you never thought were possible. For example, with just basic web and/or mobile programming knowledge, you can add live video chat/streaming to your web or mobile app with the right library.
There are many platforms out there that let you build technically difficult apps with basic programming knowledge. Here is a short list of our favorites that we have worked with at various hackathons. Because of these platforms, developers were able to use them and build amazing applications within 24 hours.
The plugin is hosted at github.com:
Using the jQuery plugin, you can fully integrate OpenTok into your jQuery-based apps.
To use the plug-in, include the OpenTok, jQuery, and jquery.opentok scripts in your HTML page:
