Skype Hacks

by Bruce Stewart

skypehks.s.gif O'Reilly has just released a new book I've been eagerly awaiting, Skype Hacks by Andrew Sheppard . As Andrew points out, saving money is really just the beginning of what you can do with Skype. Besides covering the basics, this book shows how to integrate Skype into web pages, write scripts to automate Skype, and deal with performance and quality issues.

To get a taste there are five sample hacks from the book available for free online (PDF):
Hack 43: Make Calls from Your Web Browser
Hack 44: Accelerate Skype Using Your Keyboard
Hack 45: Tweak Skype by Editing config.xml
Hack 47: Display the Technical Details of a Call
Hack 49: Add Fast-Dial Shortcuts to Your Menu or Desktop

I agree, this is a great book. I brought my copy into the office and it's been getting a lot of attention.
