Telepahty Connection Manager for Ring.

Telepathy Bell is a telepathy connection manager that enables a telepathy front end for Ring. Ring is a privacy focused communication application that uses a distributed peer to peer network for real time communications. In this talk, I would like to share my experience while creating Telepathy Bell.

The idea behind Telepathy is to unify all communications. Several communication services like IM, VOIP etc. implement their own desktop clients. This leads to duplication of effort and sometimes poor integration. Most of these features can be abstracted and their functionalities can be integrated to provide a unified user experience. A normal everyday user will use the telepathy client application to communicate. This could lower the entry barrier for many applications and make it convenient for the user to manage communication services in a single client application.

Through my talk, I would like to share my experience during GSoC and beyond of creating a telepathy connection manager for Ring.
