As the lead architect on the dash.js project, Jeff has intimate knowledge of the inner workings of this project, and he is actively collaborating with contributors from Microsoft, Google and others.

- discuss how dash players are built
- dig through the dash.js codebase
- see dash playing on mobile devices
