WebRTC is one of the most revolutionary technologies of the present. It is widely used in popular applications such as Discord, Zoom, and Google Meet. The use cases of WebRTC go beyond communication as it is also behind gaming consoles such as Google Stadia, and can be used for untapped use cases such as peer-peer file sharing.
WebRTC is not just the present, it is also the future as we shift more and more towards cloud infrastructure. The true potential of WebRTC is limited primarily due to the lack of knowledge around the subject. WebRTC is a culmination of the development of Internet technology over the last 20 years. It uses several protocols, which makes it a complex technology to learn. The goal of this course is to smoothen this learning curve while not losing focus on the concepts that make it such a powerful technology.
This is a very practical-oriented course. We learn what is WebRTC, why it is important, how it works, and cover the different protocols used in WebRTC. Followed by building two real-world applications: a real-time chat application as well as a video chat application.
By the end of this course, you will be able to work with WebRTC and build your own application.
