GigHacks updates and join the community call!

Hi GigHackers--

 

We are getting excited as GigHacks approaches and wanted to invite you to a community call today with Maire Reavy, the Lead of Mozilla’s WebRTC team, and at least one of her engineers. Someone from Oovoo is going to be calling in as well and we invited Justin Uberti, Lead of Google’s WebRTC team so we should have a good call. If you can’t make it today, we would love to have you join us on one of our twice-weekly community calls.

 

Updates, prospective projects and more below.

 

Start getting excited!
