This week Malcolm Davenport (Digium employee #4 & Senior Product Manager for Asterisk and Asterisk SCF) will be covering one of the more popular new features of Asterisk 1.8: tying Asterisk into Google. The tutorial will teach people how to effectively use Google's voice chat (part of Gmail) as a soft-phone with Asterisk, and how to make and receive free calls in the U.S. using Google Voice. Free DID, free LD, free soft-phone.
On a related note, check out TMCnet's latest list of educational webinars, which cover everything from VoIP to UC to security to CRM.
