Ruby Hoedown 2008: Calling Your Code: Gluing Phone Calls to Ruby
We've all got phones and applications we care about. Combine the two: let home-grown and open-source apps answer the phone, place calls, and control calls: voice recordings, ad-hoc conferences, menus, prompts, dynamic text-to-speech -- all tailored to the app, the problem, and the way you want it to work.
Troy will dig into Ruby APIs for interacting with phone calls at different levels of complexity and abstraction, then phone-enable real apps with Asterisk and FreeSWITCH. He'll deploy and call them live, then show how to simplify the dev and tinkering process.
