Chapman University’s Von Neumann Hall,

We are honored to have the event hosted by Chapman University’s Schmid College of Science and Technology, in partnership with the Ralph W. Leatherby Center for Entrepreneurship and Business Ethics, and Chapman’s eVillage. In addition, UC Irvine’s Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences and California State Fullerton’s College of Engineering and Computer Science are also promoting the event.
Our sponsors include, Influxis, a live streaming and real-time application hosting provider, and TokBox, an online video communications provider that
announced support for WebRTC back in August of 2012.
We are looking forward to seeing each of you at the event. To help you get oriented here are some answers to common questions:
Who can attend?
The event is free and open to software engineers, designers, product managers, marketers and entrepreneurs interested in coming together and working on building a new project, product or service involving WebRTC. Note: If you are inviting others, please ensure that they register soon as space is limited and only those registered participants will be admitted.
Can I bring code I prepared in advance?
Yes, if you want to get started early, you can bring in up to 1,000 lines of code prepared in advance. You can also leverage other existing projects from GitHub, Google Code, or other repositories. However, the judging will be based on the work that you originally create specifically for this project.
Do I have to participate on a team?
No, you do not have to work with a team. You can bring a team, work alone, or ask us to identify others who have registered who might want to work with you on a team. We encourage engineers to peer up with marketing folks and designers to have the best chance in creating a top notch project!
What equipment or supplies do I need to bring?
Bring your laptop and power cables and any other accessories designed to make your work area comfortable and efficient. Food, beverages and WiFi will be provided along with desks and work areas.
