Helping Whereby Users Get the Most Out of Whereby

This summer, Whereby, a Norwegian video conferencing startup, engaged Webinista to write a series of developer-focused tutorials to help customers get the most out of Whereby's REST API for video.

Whereby uses WebRTC — a real-time, web-based communications standard — to deliver video calls and webinars in the browser. Whereby uses a freemium model. Its Free plan offers unlimited one-to-one meetings. Its Pro and Business plans let you host larger meetings; stream meetings to services such as YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo; and record meetings to your own cloud storage account or to your device. With a Whereby Embedded plan, you can also integrate Whereby into your website or mobile application.

I worked with Whereby's marketing and engineering teams to write eight pieces that introduce developers to their API, and target Whereby's preferred search keywords.

How to Measure Your Meetings Using Whereby’s Webhooks was the most fun to write, since it required learning a bit about HMAC hashing in PHP.
