"Talking directly from browser to browser? Sign me up! WebRTC just makes so much sense and it lets you do many awesome new things that simply weren't possible before. How about in-browser voice and video-chat, file-transfers, screen-sharing or server-less chats? The possibilities are endless and have spawned entirely new use cases such as p2p-cdns greta.io or peer5 and companies like TokBox or agora.io."

WebRTC Lessons
Fundamentals & Concepts
What WebRTC is, how it works, what you need to get started and where this guide fits in

01: Data Channels
Set up a WebRTC connection between two clients and send simple messages

02: Full Mesh Connectivity
How to handle rooms for many-to-many chats or video conferences

03: Audio & Video
Request Audio and Video streams and share them via P2P

04: Video Manipulation
Apply filters and effects to an outgoing video stream using canvas rendering

05: Screen Sharing
Create a video stream from your browser or desktop and share it with other users

06: File Transfers
Read a file and send it as binary data using WebRTC data channels

Production WebRTC Apps
Considerations and resources for production ready WebRTC apps

What is WebRTC?
What do we need to get started?

First and foremost - WebRTC is hard! As far as browser APIs go its very low level and leaves many aspects of connection establishment and upkeep to the developer. And once you've got your first videochat working you'll realise something else: it's incredibly hard! Using WebRTC for realworld apps such as Google Hangouts requires a host of server side infrastructure that processes, aggregates and forwards data, manages state and connectivity and provides smoothing for the hundreds of edge cases that continue to exists around peer-to-peer video and audio streaming.

This shouldn't discourage you though. Depending on your requirements WebRTC might not only be the fastest solution, but simply the only choice. And it might help you save lots of money by keeping data-heavy traffic of your servers.

Where does this guide fit in?
This guide will take you through the basics of setting up WebRTC data, voice and video channels between two peers as well as whole rooms of users, sending files, manipulating video or sharing your screen. It's neither very low level (we'll be using WebRTC client libraries for connectivity rather than the browser API) or super high level (we won't be using one of the many WebRTC PaaS APIs such as Twilio's).

The goal is that once you've read through it you've gained a solid, hands-on understanding of what it takes to build WebRTC apps and enough additional knowledge to know where to go next.
