I started playing with Docker and I dockerized all the apps that are running on my server. It was all super straightforward except for… Asterisk! here I talk about how I made it happen (it amazes me how you set up Asterisk boxes and just forget about them… they just work)
A post about what you had to do at that time to install an old version of Asterisk in an old version of Ubuntu. Why is it valuable you ask? I don’t have a good answer.
I installed Asterisk 12 on a Raspberry… but I didn’t document all my steps because I followed another blog’s instructions. Guess what? that blog is now offline :P
A simple approach to manage Asterisk users programatically. It’s nothing weird (and probably how most people solve this issue) but given that I couldn’t find anything already written about it, I just went ahead and documented it.
I “discovered” (in the same sense that Columbus discovered America) Flowroute as a VoIP trunk provider. This post isn’t particularly insightful… but when I wrote it (in 2013) I was really excited about these things just existing.
Third Asterisk + twilio post: Making calls from Asterisk to twilio.
Here I talk about the little boxes I bought to use my regular phones (and my phone line) with my Asterisk box. I bought them in 2013 and they’ve been working great after 3 years.
I was working with twilio, I started playing with Asterisk and obviously wanted them to interact. I was so proud of what I did that I wanted to share it, so this is why I started this blog… This is the first post of 4 about it. There’re way better ways of doing it today, but these posts were an extremely important part in how my professional life changed for the better. So I love them unapologetically.
