Wedding IVR

This time, its a personal blog post. One of our star developers, Rajesh Ganji is getting married on April 14th. Working in a hacker culture makes people do interesting things. This time Rajesh took his job too seriously and ended building an IVR using KooKoo for his wedding invitation :) He then wrote a program that pulled contacts from his gmail contacts and called them programmatically and played out the IVR wedding invitation. Finally, he hosted the code on github so that future grooms and brides can use it for their own weddings if needed. You can find the code at the end of the post.

So go ahead, please call 040-30247070 and listen to the IVR wedding invitation of Rajesh Ganji and wish him the best(you need to press 3 to leave a voice greeting)

And though we know that from next week onwards, Rajesh will find it a little bit more harder to concentrate on KooKoo, we wish him all the best in his new adventure.

As a side note, another one of our star developers, Sudhakar Gupta got married last month and we wish him also all the best.

Integrating Arborjs with Angular to create a live calls dashboard

Arborjs  is a cool graph visualization library. Angular  is one of the best JavaScript frameworks and we have been using Angular in a lot of our front end development. When you handle millions of calls, proper visualization becomes very important. Without proper visualization, you can get lost in the mountains of data. So we spend a lot of time to come up with good visualizations to represent the data. Since we loved the cool way in which Arbor represented graph data, we could not wait to hook it up with Angular. Because of Angular's two way data binding, when you hook up Angularjs with Arbor.js you can get a dynamically updated visualization of graph data with cool animations. To give back to the community, we have put up the code online at Github . Basically we have created an Angularjs directive for Arborjs. Please feel free to fork the code and add extensions and use it for your own visualizations. The code is self explanatory with comments inline. Best way to get s

Mashing up Freshdesk with KooKoo for customer support ticket management

Sorry for the delay in writing a blog post. I have been caught up in too many things since last month(we are growing, so its all good :)) Anyway, this week I thought I will look at how we can use the latest rockstar startup from India, Freshdesk . Freshdesk, as most of you know is one of the best "Social Helpdesk" systems out there. I am sure most of you are already using Freshdesk to support your customers. In this blogpost I will explain how you can add telephony to the mixture. In particular I will show some code which you can use to : Welcome the caller by name Ask him to enter his ticket id Play out the ticket status Connect the caller to the correct agent handling the ticket. Luckily for us, Freshdesk has a very well defined API and it was a pleasure to work with it. The engineers were also very supportive and answered all my queries quickly. So lets get into the code directly. 1. First we need to get the caller information. For this we need to a
