I had the pleasure of meeting one of the more vibrant and outgoing characters at the conference and recorded this interview about his latest PHP AGI book. I only wish I could have shared the stories, jokes and general mirth happening in the traditional German restaurant when Tim Panton, Jason Goeke, Nir and I shared a meal.
Nir’s presentation at AMOOCON was about running Asterisk under EC2 and I hope to get him to talk about this some day as he has an actual large-scale case he deployed in this way rather than just a theoretical one.
Nir’s book, Asterisk Gateway Interface 1.4 and 1.6 Programming is a great introduction to serious programming using the AGI and PHP. The book takes you through some good solid advice for truly professional programmers on how to do stable programming in the Asterisk AGI environment. This is the book you need if you are trying to do anything serious with Asterisk in PHP.
