Time: 11:45 - 12:00 PM
As an industry how do we build scalable voice applications with open-source tools? How do we infuse talented web developers into the "uncool" telephony world? Why hasn't open-source completely dominated telephony like it has in other tech industries? These are some of the biggest questions facing the future of Emerging Communications and their answers are changing dramatically every year.
Brewing at Voxeo Labs is an open-source approach to building arbitrarily sophisticated communications applications which promises to shake up the industry. In this session Jay Phillips, the new VP of R&D at Voxeo and creator of the open-source Adhearsion telephony framework, will discuss the exciting new ways developers and entrepreneurs will be able to easily build, productize, and scale telephony applications. As an open process, willing community members are also invited to help build this public asset and make their lasting marks in a profound way on the world.
