Red Hat’s Russell Bryant Talks SDN, Open Source and AstriCon: Asterisk Live [Video]

By David Duffett

Interested in software defined networking (SDN)? Get to know Red Hat’s Russell Bryant, who focuses on OpenStack, and is a former lead developer for the Asterisk open source project. In this episode of Asterisk Live, Russell chats about open source and gives a preview of his upcoming AstriCon presentation about SDN and its implications for communications applications. 

We love doing all the Asterisk Live videos with different members of the Asterisk Community, and it was an extra special pleasure to recently record a show with Russell Bryant of Red Hat.

You see, Russell has been the Lead Developer of Asterisk in the past, and so has an intimate knowledge of what Asterisk and the Community are all about. Further, even after he moved to Red Hat, Russell maintained an active participation in the Asterisk project.

He was a keynoter at last year’s AstriCon, and he is back this year to deliver a track session all about Software-Defined Networking and Asterisk.

You will be pleased you took the time to watch this short interview with Russell, conducted by Julie Webb, Pete Engler and me, as we prepare for this year’s AstriCon:

If you have not yet gotten your AstriCon pass, you risk missing out on seeing Russell and a host of other great speakers at our Orlando event this October – so do it now! And just to help you make that decision, here’s a special discount code that will get you 15% off the regular ticket price:
