The VUC was pleased to give away two copies of the book, “WebRTC Blueprints” from PACKT Publishing. We regret that author Andrii Sergiienco was unable to attend due to events in Ukraine.
According to the publisher – “If you are a WebRTC developer and want to build complex WebRTC applications and projects, or if you want to gain practical experience in developing web applications, advanced WebRTC media handling, Server and client signalling, call flows, third party integration, then this book is perfect for you. It is essential to have prior knowledge about building simple applications using WebRTC.”
We gave away the two copies of the book on IRC. We also had one of our signature wide-ranging and impromptu discussions with Jay Carpenter about a new project he is working on.
Co-author and Bluetooth specialist Carles Cufi joins us to talk about the book “Getting Started with Bluetooth Low Energy” from Oreilly:
With Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), smart devices are about to become even smarter. This practical guide demonstrates how this exciting wireless technology helps developers build mobile apps that share data with external hardware, and how hardware engineers can gain easy and reliable access to mobile operating systems.
“This book provides a really good introduction to Bluetooth Low Energy technology. It describes what the BLE wireless standard is, basics of the protocol used, the Generic Access Profile, and the Generic Attribute Profile. It then goes on to cover tools for development and testing. The last chapters cover Android and IOS development platforms. Like every other OReilly book I have read it is excellent. The material is presented in logical order and it is not hard to grasp.” – Amazon reviewer.
