Adhearsion 3: the future of Ruby communications
At the outset of the project to build the second version of Adhearsion, we outlined our vision for the project: that Adhearsion 1 was a framework for building Asterisk applications, Adhearsion 2 is a framework for building voice applications (across three platforms), and that Adhearsion 3 would be a framework for building realtime communications applications. v2 is stable and in wide production usage, and now we’re starting to think about what specifically v3 will look like and what capabilities it will expose to make building realtime communications applications in Ruby easier, more fun, and more expressive. In this presentation I will share some of these ideas, along with example use cases and explain why we believe this work is essential to bringing Ruby to the forefront in this arena. I will also share some lessons learned in the process of maintaining such an open-source project facing it’s third major evolution right at its peak.
