Well, it’s finally out – my new book that is 🙂

Some of you already know, but over the past year I’ve been busy writing a new book. This time it’s a book for Asterisk developers, especially tailored to PHP developers wishing to utilizing the PHPAGI framework. The book is out from Packt Publishing (Like my old AsteriskNOW book) and is updated with all the recent changes in Asterisk – including version 1.6.X and DAHDI.

Asterisk Developers Book

If you like my work with Asterisk and would like to read more of my work, go ahead and get an electronic version of this book. I know it’s a little self promoting, by hey, it never hurts does it?

I’ve included a chapter on how to build a complete project from scratch, detailing the various analysis steps and various paradigms required to develop a fully functional Asterisk based application. I believe that even experienced Asterisk developers will benefit from this book.

As most of you reading this blog, you must know that I’ve published an AsteriskNOW book early this year. I’m happy to say that I’ve received numerous emails since the publication of the book, all asking various questions about Asterisk in general and AsteriskNOW in particular.

Most of the questions that I received were related to the development of AGI and AMI scripts, and how to utilize Asterisk as an application layer platform. This inspired me to work on additonal title, to complete my previous book. I’m currently working on an Asterisk Developers guide, for AGI/CTI development with Asterisk. The book serves as a complete guide, summarizing the various aspects of developing AGI/CTI applications with Asterisk, while, enjoying various additions from my day-to-day experience with AGI/CTI development with Asterisk. The book is written as an eye-opener for experienced developers, wishing to make their transition to AGI/CTI development, and teaches them how to avoid the most common mistakes of early day AGI developers.

I’ll be be updating the blog with my progress. Currently, chapters 1 through 5 are complete, covering the basic aspects of dial-plan and AGI development. More information will be released soon.
