Wow, what an awesome event that the Railsberry team put on last week in Krakow, Poland! It’s difficult to describe in words the attention to detail and coordination by the Applicake and Future Simple crews put into making this a truly memorable event.
Google recently released nearly $70M worth of opensource code to the world, in order to help improve real-time communications (RTC) over the Internet; they call it WebRTC.
Today we are proud to preview our experimental WebRTC support for the PhonoSDK. Since WebRTC is so new, it only runs in Google’s Chrome Canary experimental browser. The video below demonstrates an encrypted Phono-to-Phono – voice and video – P2P WebRTC experience in a Canary browser and we hope you’re impressed with what you see.
Note: there are a couple of additional videos on the page that demonstrate what else we are doing with Phono and WebRTC!
I was privileged to have the opportunity of moderating the Tropo Customer Spotlight session at the Voxeo Customer Summit in Orlando, Florida last week. Six customers each gave a brief presentation on their business followed by a discussion on how they are using Tropo to deliver their Voice, SMS, and Instant Messaging services.
Tropo just recently partnered with PamFax to deliver faxing capabilities via an API. Jason Goecke wrapped their API with a very simple Ruby gem called pamfaxr available at GitHub and installable using a “gem install pamfaxr” from your command line. Using the PamFaxr Ruby gem, I will demonstrate how to send a simple fax as well as how to build a Tropo Voice to Fax transcription application using our Scripting API!
Diggz and SocialVirgil hit up SuperHappyDevHouse 42 this weekend in San Jose at the tech museum, joining over 300 hackers from all over the bay area. Virgil shot & edited this montage video with some highlights of the day’s fun:
Jose De Castro, Chief Architect of Voxeo Labs and the lead on Tropo, gave a talk at Pivotal Labs in April. Pivotal is one of the premier web app development shops and invites people in to talk about interesting web technologies. Attendance to the the talks are open by invitation only, but Pivotal Labs records the talks on video and makes them available to the public.
