New planet sites for SIP

I've started syndicating some SIP-related blogs at planet.sip5060.net (English) and planet.sip5060.net/es (Spanish).

If anybody would like to have their blog added or suggest other blogs that deserve recognition, please email me. If a blog is not entirely dedicated to SIP, it is better to use a tag or category with a dedicated RSS feed URL for SIP articles.

Articles related to Asterisk, FreeSWITCH, SIP proxies and softphones are all welcome.

A mission statement for free real-time communications

At FOSDEM 2013, the RTC panel in the main track used the tag line "Can we finally replace Skype, Viber, Twitter and Facebook?"

Enterprise-grade SIP coming to Telepathy

I've just announced the reSIProcate connection manager for the Telepathy framework on the Linux desktop.

As the announcement states, it is still a proof-of-concept. It was put together very rapidly just to see how well the reSIProcate project and its build system interacts with TelepathyQt, the Qt framework and DBus.

RTC Quick Start becoming a book, now in beta

The Real-Time Communications (RTC) Quick Start Guide started off as a web site but has recently undergone bookification.

As of today, I'm calling this a beta release, although RTC is a moving target and even when a 1.0 release is confirmed, the book will continue to evolve.

An important aspect of this work is that the book needs to be freely and conveniently available to maximize participation in Free RTC. (This leads to the question of which free license should I choose?)

Want to be selected for Google Summer of Code 2016?

I've mentored a number of students in 2013, 2014 and 2015 for Debian and Ganglia and most of the companies I've worked with have run internships and graduate programs from time to time. GSoC 2015 has just finished and with all the excitement, many students are already asking what they can do to prepare and be selected for Outreachy or GSoC in 2016.

The only way to ensure the VW scandal never happens again

The automotive industry has been in the spotlight after a massive scandal at Volkswagen, using code hidden in the engine management software to cheat emissions tests.

Skype outage? reSIProcate to the rescue!

On Friday, the reSIProcate community released the latest beta of reSIProcate 1.10.0. One of the key features of the 1.10.x release series is support for presence (buddy/status lists) over SIP, the very thing that is currently out of action in Skype.
