Many of the open platforms for mobile are making a serious ommission. The Voice Channel. The phone is very good at handling voice and users are comfortable with it as a communication channel. In this Session John Todd, the lead tech evangelist for Asterisk looks at how you can develop for voice services off the handset and on the network using Asterisk and similar platforms.
John has been working with IP-based software for 20 years, and has been heavily involved in the Asterisk VoIP platform since 2003. At Digium, John is responsible for acting as a conduit between Digium and the large open-source developer ecosystem that surrounds Asterisk. John has served as CTO of several VoIP-related firms working in the service provider or mobile areas, as well as working as a consultant for dozens of firms building Enterprise or Service Provider platforms for voice delivery. John is one of the leaders of the http://freenum.org/ alternate telephony numbering system. In his spare time, he works on unreasonably heavy biodiesel, steam, and other alternate-energy implementations in his dangerously cramped machine shop/garage.
