Getting started with Janus

This workshop will give a practical introduction to Janus, starting from how it works, how it can be configured, and how you usually talk to it. Some of the most used plugins will be presented too, together with examples of how to use them in applications for different use cases. It will also provide an  introduction to some of the more advanced features (e.g., simulcast and RTP forwarders) and what they allow for.
