This course is currently being “written”. Expect new lessons to be dripped as part of it.
The Low-level WebRTC Protocols training course is focused on getting you up to a level of understand of the WebRTC protocols that will enable you to debug challenging network scenarios and how be able to approach implementing these protocols on your own if you choose to do so.
Who is this course for?
- Developers who know WebRTC at a high level and have used it a bit
- Those who want to deepen their understanding of how WebRTC works at its lowest levels at the highest detail
- When what you need is to debug tough WebRTC bugs that require looking closely at network traffic
- If you plan on developing your own WebRTC components from scratch
What you will learn
- What are the network protocols used by WebRTC
- How these protocols look like on the network – their message structure
- What tools do you have to debug and troubleshoot these protocols in WebRTC
This course doesn’t offer complete knowledge and understanding of WebRTC. It is complementary to the other WebRTC courses for developers available on this site. You are required to know and understand how WebRTC works and interacts in broadstrokes:
- What’s ICE and NAT traversal. How these mechanisms work at a high level
- How is media sent and received in WebRTC
- What are the API calls
The bulk of the course is composed out of lessons, where each lesson deals with a certain network protocol or mechanism in WebRTC. We follow this technology stack diagram when looking at the make up of a WebRTC implementation:
