First—some important news: We've changed the dates.
Early this year, we announced dates for RealtimeConf, RedisConf, and a brand new, WebRTC-focused event. A short time later, our friends at LxJS announced their dates—which were unfortunately the same. We immediately reached out, discussed the mix-up, and determined that we were in the best position to change our dates.
After getting back to the states after being part of a wonderful first-time RealtimeConf EU smashingly organized by Julien Genestoux, we've reset dates and, in the meantime, we've made tremendous headway on conference planning.
Last year, we had a full week of Realtime events and we're just ramping that up a notch, by adding a full day focused on the most exciting realtime technology to hit the web: WebRTC.
Here's what Realtime Week looks like this year:
We are quite thrilled to be teaming up on RedisConf with Ben Arent, founder of RedisToGo, a significant contributor to the first RedisConf, and the organizer of the San Francisco Redis Meetup. Ben's passion for Redis makes him a perfect fit and we're excited to be working with him! Here's the call for speakers for RedisConf.
Here's what attendees said about last year's RealtimeConf:
You’ll really kick yourself if you miss this year—and it will most definitely sell out FAST.
You can join the mailing list.
Here's the casting call for RealtimeConf.
We’ll be co-organizing with a couple of our friends and heroes: Amber Case and Aaron Parecki of Esri R&D. Expect a mix of educational talks and demos of the amazing things people are already buildling with WebRTC. Here's the call for speakers.
We're excited to see a continuation of developments that have emerged over the past year as a result of some of the community cross-pollination from RealtimeConf. We're looking forward to a lot of discussion around WebRTC + XMPP this year.
Best way to stay in the loop on the planning for the 2013 US XMPP Summit is to join the public mailing list.
