This is a repeat of a talk given at the May 2005 LUV Programmers SIG meeting (Melb, AU) with an extension in the section on the asterisk C API.
The talk covers all of the methods of programming asterisk, including the Dialplan (and other config files), the CLI, AGI, .call files, the manager API, modules and hacking on the tree itself. All sections have detailed examples and demos (including quality hardware phones that can be patched into a PA system)
