Need to get up to speed on WebRTC fast, this is the way forward: detailed, concise and well structured it gets you into the realm of browser Real Time Communications quickly but with a solid reference to the defining standards, some of which are still in motion.

A critical decision factor for me was the very recent Publication Date of this title, important for newer and evolving standards.

Alan Johnston and Dan Burnett have updated their excellent "The WebRTC book", the full title is "WebRTC: APIs and RTCWEB Protocols of the HTML5 Real-Time Web." It was only back in September 2012 I reviewed the first version of their excellent book, and much has happened, which is all captures in this second edition.

This edition begins with an introduction to WebRTC and discusses what is new about it. The unique aspects of WebRTC peer-to-peer media flows are explored, and Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal are explained. They have lots of new material, including new chapters on signaling, and privacy and security. They discuss the working documents and finalized documents that together comprise the WebRTC standards-in-progress in both the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). And finally discuss the current state of deployment in popular browsers, which surprisingly hasn't changed that much over the past year compared to the standard.

Whether you're a developer looking to understand what WebRTC can do for you, or a marketing person wishing to gain a deeper understanding of an important industry development, or a strategy person digging deeper into what WebRTC is and isn't, this is the book for you. Easily accessible and frankly presented with no hyperbole just the facts, the book continues to provides the best review of a standard that will in time transform the web by making real-time communications an intrinsic part of the experience. The WebRTC Book remains one of my few "constant companion books" as its on my Kindle and on my desk.

My review is more of a word of warning.

If you are looking for a book that is very practical, with a lot of example code, and a lot of "here are a lot of small exercises to build you up to the more complicated things" - then this not the book for you.

While incredibly informative, this book is very, very, very heavy on the theory before it even gets into a sample application (which you can't download the code to, which is a point of frustration).

That being said, it is incredibly thorough, and attempts to explain almost every aspect of how a WebRTC system does (and could) work - which has value in it's own right.

All in all - I don't think you can get this information condensed into one package anywhere else, and they have done a very good job in attempting to put it all together, especially knowing the state of flux of WebRTC at the time of publishing.

This is a great resource for high level WebRTC concepts and contains basic code. I wished the book had more details on constraints and the actual objects instead of describing them from a high level.
