We hope you all had a great week. On our Wednesday conference
call<http://wiki.freeswitch.org/wiki/FS_weekly_2012_09_05>we discussed
several items as a community. One item of note was how to
handle mailing list posts that are overly broad and reflect a lack of
research on the part of the individual doing the posting. After much
discussion we decided that we would create some online documentation that
helps new ones get their bearings when considering the big picture in
FreeSWITCH. (For example, what are modules and why do we have them?) Thanks
to Dave Kompel for helping to get that started.

This week we welcome Ben Langfield and Ben
Klang<http://www.cluecon.com/speaker/111/>who will be discussing the
Adhearsion <http://adhearsion.com/> framework for FreeSWITCH. Adhearsion is
a Ruby-based framework for building telephony applications. You may recall
that Ben Klang joined us at ClueCon 2012 <http://www.cluecon.com> to make
the announcement<http://www.cluecon.com/presentation/news-about-adhearsion-project/>about
Adhearsion being available for FreeSWITCH. We look forward to
learning more about how Adhearsion works with FreeSWITCH.

Let's all have a great week!
