Blockchains for a new machine economy
The protocol that underlies Bitcoin and other digital money can be used for a lot more than just payments: music copyright, smart contracts, exam certification and energy allocation, for example. The convergence between IoT and blockchain tech is one of the most exciting topics at the moment. The Internet of Things is projected to comprise 26 billion devices and a $1.9 trillion economy by 2020, and with the likes of Microsoft and IBM now developing blockchain implementations, it’s a question of when - not if – this technology will start underpinning many areas of everyday life.

Making video chat a feature
WebRTC has been promising a glorious future of peer to peer communications since its initial release back in 2011. As always the reality is a bit more difficult than it sounded. We'll take a look at what WebRTC gives you as well as, importantly, what it leaves out. We'll take a look at the hurdles involved in implementing WebRTC. Finally we'll see how we can combine WebRTC services with Web Components to realise that glorious future with very little effort.
