The Web of Tomorrow
updated 5 months ago; latest suggestion 4 months ago
The web is changing and new changes are coming.
How will the new RFCs will affect the web as we know it? What technologies will raise again? Is Ruby prepared for this changes?
I want to answer these questions and talk about new web technologies and how we need to change to adapt to this upcoming era.
From web sockets to WebRTC. From distributed to decentralised.
The storm is coming… are you ready?
I will not be explicity talking about the RFC, nor describing the protocol itself but it's more about the connotations and "side effects" of a new way of web communication.
The three main topics are going to be:
Camera/Mic access P2P audio/video communication P2P Raw data communication
Watch out for covering too many RFCs. You might hold audience attention better by delivering a shorter talk focused on a single RFC, in somewhat greater depth. Or, if covering multiple RFCs, just take care to keep an interesting pace.
I don't know very much about webRTC, so I don't know how interesting a talk that discusses it is going to be. I think you could improve this proposal with a couple of sentences explaining what it is, and integrating the feedback you've already provided to other suggestions by editing your proposal.
One other way to make this proposal more compelling would be to include an outline of at least one hypothesis about how a specific RFC might affect the web as we know it, and Ruby specifically. You wouldn't need to go into much detail, but it will give a better flavour of what the presentation would be like, perhaps?
I'll be referring to the webRTC RFC: http://www.w3.org/TR/webrtc/.
The "hard" part it's about the concurrency patterns that will involve. I'm not just trying to aboard the technology side of this but also the social impact.
I'll be covering access to the camera, p2p video communication and p2p data communication.
Ruby doesn't need to be prepared for the changes, surely? The frameworks do - that's a question of making sure that the tooling is created to handle them.
Can you give us some examples of what RFC's you mean and why it might be hard? I'd love a storm that means I don't have to know 5 languages to deploy even the simplest app, but I bet it will mean I need to know 8. :D
Could you list out some of the specific technologies / protocols you would be covering?
