ETel Conference: VoIP Hacks

by Bruce Stewart

Jim Van Meggelen (author of Asterisk: The Future of Telephony) just hosted a session that featured some cool VoIP-related hackers. Speakers showed off things like setting up auto-provisioning phones in an enterprise environment, hacking up a click-to-call service, and even playing adventure games over your PBX. There's a lot of neat stuff being shown off here, and one thing that's becoming very clear is that by using Asterisk and VoIP the barrier to entry for developing new voice applications has gotten a whole lot lower.
