Asterisk and Rails

by Steve Mallett

Pop quiz, hot shot! What two topics are so high up the tech. meme ladder that they make geeks quiver at the mouth?

Right! Asterick & Rails. Now, put them together for mouth foaming madness in Hacking Asterisk and Rails with RAGI.

In this article, I'll provide a quick overview of how Asterisk, the open source PBX, can be used as a general-purpose "telephony protocol server," and can be connected to Ruby on Rails to create a rapid prototyping environment for creating next-generation VoIP applications and services.

Funny you mention this because I just read a LinuxWorld article about Asterisk and some of the cool things you can do with it. That article doesn't have much technical details, but there are some neat ideas about how to use Asterisk in clever ways.
