Hacking Asterisk and Rails with RAGI

by Bruce Stewart

111-rails_asterisk.gif What do you get when you mix Asterisk with Ruby on Rails? How about a powerful and open platform for creating the next generation of voice applications. Joe Heitzeberg has developed the Ruby Asterisk Gateway Interface (RAGI), an open-source framework for bridging the Ruby on Rails web application server environment and Asterisk, the open-source PBX. According to Joe, the two fit together like chocolate and peanut butter.

Using RAGI, you can now easily and quickly develop voice applications that run with the power of Asterisk underneatht the hood. Check out Joe's article for a taste of this Voice 2.0 peanut butter cup, and if it leaves you craving more be sure to attend his Ruby on Rails with Asterisk workshop at our upcoming Emerging Telephony Conference.
