HASH(0x9d32b54c) out of 5 stars Must have handbook for every WebRTC enthusiast Aug. 13 2014
By Rajesh Panicker - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great read for newbies and wannabes. I didn't start this book at zero knowledge of WebRTC. I knew the working parts and then a few implementations. But then, I still had a gut feeling that i wasn't well attuned to the entire framework and without that no technical endevor is complete.

This book has an excellent path of progression through it chapters that walks you through the myriad nooks and crannies of the WebRTC as a framework. At no point did i feel the author has shirked away from dealing with parts that could be tougher nut to crack. And so instead of filling on pages and content with the really easy and appealing stuff, the author delves deeper into more intricate territories of authentication, security and the best part about the STUN / TURN.

I have to say that reading the book has left me wiser and not to mention the source code and the practical implementation guidelines, has helped a lot in making my understanding a lot better than where i was when i picked the book.

Aha ... shouldn't i mention my grouse even if its a minor one. The choice of ERLANG as the programming language. While it serve the purpose and i know of large scale projects implemented on it, still i would have preferred a more mainstream language like NODE.JS. Maybe i was searching for copy+paste implementation for my projects.

HASH(0x9d32b5a0) out of 5 stars I like that, because I don’t need to filter key ... July 20 2014
By Gennadiy - Published on
Format: Paperback
I had never heard of WebRTC until a friend of mine told me that you can have a Skype call without a Skype client. Without any client actually, just using you browser, and that’s it. That was very interesting to me at that moment, and still is interesting, and I see big potential in this technology. Simplicity for the customer is always one of the key competitive advantages. So this book is the practical guide on WebRTC.

If you accustomed to feel a paper brick in your hands, imaging guide book on a new technology, this is not the case. I like that, because I don’t need to filter key info from the background. Normally it takes a lot of precious time. But don’t be afraid, the author will not leave you with a page code chunk followed by a two line explanation. On the contrary, special feature of the text is that code is divided in small pieces and everything is explained step-by-step.

The WebRTC specialties demand, that the author has to cover a number of different topics, as configuring and installing STUN and TURN servers, using HTML5, HTTPS and SSL, using JavaScript for the browser-side and so on, and he does, gradually creating working project. So this book is valuable for those who want’s in the end to receive working result.

I'm wary of books that just skip sharp edges, to make image smoother. That's not the case here; the author goes into all details about network programming from the beginning to final destination, commenting and explaining every single step, not silencing important open issues.

I highly recommend this hardcore practical guide to anyone who wants reliably start with WebRTC in a shortest possible time.

HASH(0x9d32b9d8) out of 5 stars Useful book about useful technology July 7 2014
By Alex - Published on
Format: Paperback
Nowadays more and more often is raised the question of security. After sensational leaks of secret information about methods of works of some security services companies, web services and usual users now increasingly think about safety of their private data. Now both commonly known and new channels of communication either cannot provide reliable security or demands a lot of expenses for their services. For sure if you are owner of big company that allocates annually thousands for additional security of information WebRTC technology maybe will not become the end point of your demands but it is good chance to save part of your budget. For those who looking for dependable tool which can trust this technology can provide maximal flexible possibility to establish secure communication channel for transfer video/audio/file data for internal and external requirements.
This book will introduce you with WebRTC closer and provide maximally understandable and full instruction on how you can make own application based on WebRTC framework.
First of all «WebRTC Blueprints» intended for wide range of readers. Of course you should have minimal basic knowledge nevertheless I think most part of people who associate themselves with the programming easily can deal with the building of their own applications.
On the other hand this book can help experienced programmers easy create chat for support of customers or create secure video conference or file sharing service for corporate site.
As I mentioned WebRTC framework it is free and safe alternative for famous connection services but moreover this technology is becoming more popular and also will be increasingly popular in the labor market programmers owning it.
In my opinion this book is an example of simplicity and convenience of education material dedicated to web technologies. «WebRTC Blueprints» totally worth the money you spend on it as it will give you the opportunity to save money on costly communication channels without losing your data security, the time to resolve compatibility problems of different frameworks and additional knowledge that you can actively use in the future.

HASH(0x9d32bd98) out of 5 stars Architect Quality July 21 2014
By ACE - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's an excellent book on how to actually build your own WebRTC Server & Service from scratch. This book will put everything together if you have or have-not read any of the other WebRTC books. This book covers all of the required components to make it work. The best part is that everything is Open Source.

I would re-arrange some of the chapters though. For example, the Introductory sections in Chapter 2, I believe, should be at the beginning of Chapter 1.

The downside to this book is that the author assumes a certain level of Unix/Linux expertise. This book is definitely not for anyone at the beginner level. But, if you know what WebRTC or HTML5 is, then you should have some Unix experience under your belt. If its been awhile, then this is a good way to get reacquainted.

I highly recommend this book. Again, it really does cover everything you'll need and how to do it. Depending on how much time you've got and your level of expertise, you could actually have a WebRTC Service up and running in a day to a week.

HASH(0x9d32be7c) out of 5 stars WebRTC Blueprints: 300s level course Aug. 13 2014
By Lantre Barr - Published on
Format: Paperback
WebRTC Blueprints is a hard core guide for building upon previous knowledge of WebRTC. While it's not for newbies, it goes in depth to show you how to get started with your first implementation of WebRTC from the ground up.

It gives you step by step instructions using each element of the WebRTC API, to help you bring it all together at the end. WebRTC Blueprints takes it one step further by including mobile into the mix. Mobile still has a long way to go but it a good starting point for those interested in building native applications using WebRTC.

Overall, I am pleased with WebRTC Blueprints and recommend it as read after you are familiar with WebRTC.
