Big Blue Button is an open source project that weds a number of existing projects to create a high-quality distance learning and collaboration platform. This week project lead Fred Dixon joins us to deliver an update on the state of the project, hot on the heels of their most recent developer conference.

It’s been two years since we first interconnected a Hangout and Big Blue Button. Back then the project was completely Flash-based, but working on integrating HTML5 and aspects of WebRTC.  How far did they get? Watch and find out.

On the occasion of VUC540, May 8th, 2015 Tim Panton, WebRTC guru, VUC regular and self-described protocol droid, will detail a recent pet project known as YoPet. YoPet is a WebRTC-based service built to allow pet owners a simple, secure way to video chat with their furry, scaly and/or feathered friends.

Yopet is comprised of a web service that connects the distant pet owner back to the home, where the pet has access to an Android device running the YoPet application. In the telling of this tale Tim will illuminate a variety of issues faced in developing the service.

This weeks related form of dangerous demo may involve one of my canine office-mates demonstrating YoPet live.
