Skype Announcements at Communications Developer

I was just perusing an article on Skype development from Greg Galitzine which consists of an interview with head of development for the world’s most successful VoIP software company. The interview is with Paul Amery the Director of the Skype Developer Program.
 
Here are some of the salient comments from Paul:
 
The breadth of developers who work with Skype is extraordinary. They range from 15-year old techies who are coding in their bedrooms to CEOs with more than 30 years of experience developing software applications. The uniting factor is that they all love Skype, and constantly want us to enhance the platform to help them do more.
 
The most popular application [Skype Extra] overall is CrazyTalk for Skype from Reallusion. This is a piece of software that allows users to use live avatars and emotions while on Skype video calls. Basically, it lip synchs a video avatar to your speech. It’s a lot of fun and has been downloaded more than 4 million times to date.
 
At TMC’s Communications Developer Conference in Santa Clara next month, I will be sharing my view of what makes a successful developer. I also plan to explain how to develop with Skype — from concept to cash. I’ve seen tens of thousands of third-party applications over the past seven years of involvement with various developer programs, but I think there are probably eight key factors to success. I will be sharing these with the attendees.
 
Here are a few questions and answers taken verbatim:
 
GG: Have you seen any exciting applications “on the drawing board” that might be available to the community of Skype users any time soon?
PA: During my keynote, I will be discussing some of these exciting new applications and channels.
 
Greg did a great job with this interview and I am looking forward to hearing what Paul has to say at the conference in a few weeks. I hope to see you there.
