I’ve been writing articles for SIP Adventures for close to seven years now.  Yikes!  While it began as primarily a SIP blog (thus the title), it didn’t take long for me to branch out far beyond INVITEs and PRACKs.  In fact, these days I probably spend more time on IoT and AI than anything else.

In my latest article for No Jitter, I take a look at you can telephone-enable bots.  This is very cool stuff! Let Your Bots do the Talking

Are you as annoyed as I am by robocalls?  Do you hate being told that the IRS is after you or that you’ve just qualified for a “special” new health insurance plan? In my latest article for No Jitter, I look at how enterprises can finally fight back against these time-wasting and malicious calls. Fighting […]

Here is my friend, Thomas Roemer of Avaya, with another demonstration of IoT in action.  In this video, he is running my IoT workflow tasks (plus several others I created) from the Avaya CPaaS cloud platform (formerly known as Zang). Cool stuff!

To know me in real life is to know that I have a hard time sitting still.  If I see a dirty dish in the sink, I wash it.  If my lawn needs mowing, I’m out there with the mower.  My idea of relaxation is a 40-mile bike ride. This bleeds into my programming life […]

I decided to have a little fun today and expand on what I have been doing with bots.  This time around, I created the prototype of an application that allows hospital patients to request a nurse via a bedside smart speaker.  While my bot is still pretty simplistic, the idea it explores can be expanded […]

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right. Thomas Paine Old habits are hard to break.  In order to remind myself of the behaviors I want to stop doing, I recently put together a list of the worst of mine.  I keep it close at hand […]

I will just come out and say it.  I hate seeing myself on video.  Call it vanity or call it insecurity, but I always think I look dorky.  So, it was with great trepidation that I accepted Andrew Maher’s invitation to virtually sit with him for three questions.  However, after all the dust settled and […]

I have been a “professional” programmer since 1983 (yes, I am that old) and still get a kick out of seeing how other people use my software.  In this case, Thomas Roemer from Avaya has created a smart parking solution that employs the artificial intelligence and IoT integration software I created.  It’s a cool video […]

A few weeks ago, I shared the work I have been doing in creating bots for Google Home smart speakers.  As cool as those applications are (in my humble opinion), I don’t ever want to be thought of as a one trick pony, so I recently turned my attention to doing the same for Amazon’s […]
