Here at TokBox HQ we’ve spent the past couple of weeks getting excited and getting ready for the WebRTC Conference & Expo taking place in Atlanta June 17-19. For those who have not been before, this semi-annual expo is the longest running WebRTC event where attendees have the opportunity to meet service providers, attend training sessions, learn about the latest developments and hear from industry experts.
Already this has been an exciting year in the WebRTC world, with some significant movements in the industry, exciting acquisitions and the development of innovative new use cases. We’re sure that next week’s event will be one of the best yet!
At the event we’ll announce some exciting new platform enhancements – we’ll post all of those announcements here on the blog so stay tuned.
