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

Google's approach to business communication

 Google has been making silent moves in the business communication space. Google has mostly lost the instant messaging wars. But it does not want to lose the business communication war. WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook have been making their own moves to enable businesses to reach their customers through their channels. Its all about who has control over the communication channels. Especially communication which leads to business. That's where the money is. Currently, Google is the king of search and most online transactions start with a Google search. FB, Amazon, Apple and others want to change that. They want the search to start on their properties.

Apple has also made some nice moves with Apple business chat. They have integrated a whole shopping expe
