Telepathy: Real-time Communications Framework

Telepathy is a communications framework based around the D-Bus desktop IPC system. The project defines a series of interfaces which can expose all of the functionality of any IM/VOIP protocol, implemented in background processes which maintain connections to the services on your behalf.

Front-end processes (be they GUIs, console applications, bots, gateways...) can interact with these background processes to carry out various activities on these connections. The protocols are abstracted by the API so that any task which is possible on a given protocol can be performed in the same way whatever the underlying protocol.

This presentation will explain the rationale and design of the Telepathy framework, discuss how the technology is currently being deployed (on the GNOME and KDE desktops, the Nokia 770 & N800 Internet Tablets, and the One Laptop Per Child project) and where it's going, and demonstrate some example uses of the API.
