Gaboogie Embraces Open Source For New Mobile Group Calling and Conference Calling Solution
Ruby on Rails, Adhearsion and CentOS create launch pad for new mobile conferencing application.
Vancouver, Canada, August 1, 2007 – Gaboogie (www.gaboogie.com) announced today the integration of open-source Adhearsion v0.80 written in Ruby, leveraging the existing Ruby on Rails Gaboogie software engine running on CentOS Linux as the platform for a new Gaboogie Mobile offering.
Jay Phillips, founder of Adhearsion, has been on site at Gaboogie for the past several weeks integrating Adhearsion into the new Gaboogie application. Adhearsion is an open source, unconventional framework that ties technologies together neatly. Adhearsion is most noted as being “adhesion you can hear” for integrating VoIP by building atop Digium's Asterisk PBX software. Adhearsion was designed to “understand” the many elements of the VoIP picture and both improve them individually and tie them together in one comprehensive solution.
"The majority of the initial Gaboogie application was written in Ruby because we wanted to utilize open source rapid application development technologies favored in the web 2.0 development community," commented Co-Founder of Gaboogie, Erik Lagerway.
"By implementing Adhearsion on top of FreeSWITCH and rounding out the rest of our own feature set using Ruby on Rails we were able to create a much more maintainable code base. I believe that we have now set the stage for future Gaboogie feature development and deployment. The first of the features to be made available using this new architecture will be Gaboogie Mobile, a sub-set of Gaboogie features created for mobile conferencing and mobile group calling. Gaboogie Mobile is scheduled for release in the fall of this year."
Gaboogie is a unique conference calling and group calling service that allows users to schedule calls that automatically CALL YOU and your attendees. All Gaboogie calls also include toll-free dial-in numbers and attendee passcodes for traditional conference calling access. Gaboogie can call participants in over 70 countries, including the US, Canada, all EU countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and many other locations in Europe, the Americas and Asia.
