Event: Friday July 23rd, 2010 at 12 Noon EDT
AdhearsionConf has been announced and registration is open. Jay Phillips, the creator of Adhearsion, will be present for two days of talks, discussions, hacking and pair programming on all things Adhearsion. Other folks will be there sharing their innovative uses of Adhearsion.
John Higgins, a Developer Outreach guy at Voxeo Labs joins VUC to um.. reach out to developers and get the Adhearsion word out.
Adhearsion is a new way to write voice-enabled applications. It’s not just an API or library — it’s a fully-featured framework, the first of its kind, designed for maximal code reuse and intuitiveness. The name “Adhearsion” is a combination of “adhesion” and “hear” because Adhearsion shines best when integrating technologies with voice.
Adhearsion uses the high-level Ruby programming language and has a comprehensive regression test suite. In the age of the social web, what other technologies are more social than voice? Adhearsion aims to help merge this so-called “Web 2.0” world with the previously untamable telephony world.
Voice applications don’t have to be hard. Adhearsion abstracts much of the complicated telephony domain, allowing you to focus on what’s really important: the business domain. Take a look at the Examples to see what we mean.
We take open-source software seriously. The telecom industry, above all, needs fresh innovative talent and Adhearsion’s here to foster it. This is one of the final major frontiers for open-source to truly make a transformative impact and now is an exciting time to be a part of it.
