Make a phone call from Powershell.

 

  1. Tried searching for stuff all over the place for calling options.
  2. Saw some options on Twilio forums which required calling Twilio DLL’s. I didn’t want to add another .DLL layer.
  3. Discovered Tropo !! Free Dev Version !! <simpsons opening theme>
    How do I post to tropo. Tropo support directed me the correct API link
  4. Decided on Javascript against python/ruby and others. You just do a Call($number).That’s it.
  5. Did a lot of research on passing objects from Powershell to Javascript. I was going crazy over it. Listened to J.D and played this > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=175j15a4w7A
  6. Took me a day to figure this out. http://poshcode.org/3369

 

Enjoy.
