VoIP and Coding Addicted OpenSIPs Founder Bogdan Iancu Insight

The most superb community builders are few and far between, and in the IP communications coding world, one of those few is Bogdan Iancu, founder of OpenSIPs. Meet him in person at Cluecon.com where Zoiper gal and guys will show how #BLF and SIP #presence works in front of FreeSWITCH.

Problem two can be keeping that network hack-proof.

Having residential and business hackproof can be pretty crucial.

Four years later, I was putting in 15 hour work days with a VoIP startup called Super Technologies, Inc. with low cost or even free calling via something called Super Phone, very popular in India. 

Inspired and encouraged by people like Jeff Pulver, Rich Tehrani, Rehan Allahwala, (the other Super Technologies, Inc. and later DIDX co-founder), Jagdish Loganathan, Arslaan Ikram, Melinda and Herman Dewitt ...
