Yjs is a very compelling choice when it comes to building real-time collaborative applications. A powerful open-source, offline first, peer to peer, shared editing framework that is modular and extensible, Yjs enables developers to easily add real time collaborative capabilities to any type of application. Rich text editing, drawing, 3d modeling... the list of potential use cases for Yjs is lengthy and remarkable. But how did it get started, what is the algorithm it’s based on, and what does the future hold for Yjs? In this Tag1 Team Talk, hear directly from Kevin Jahns, the creator of Yjs, as we dive deeply into the foundations of Yjs and where it’s headed.
Join moderator Preston So (Contributing Editor, Tag1 Consulting) and guests Kevin Jahns (Real Time Collaboration Systems Lead, Tag1; Creator of Yjs), Fabian Franz (Senior Technical Architect and Performance Lead, Tag1), and Michael Meyers (Managing Director, Tag1) for an insider’s perspective on the past, present, and future of Yjs.
