So much OPEN SOURCE LOVE at AstriCon!

By David Duffett

With less than a week to go, everyone is getting very excited for another AstriCon, and the team at Digium has gone into over-drive to ensure that another top class event is delivered.

While AstriCon was started as the Conference and Expo for Asterisk – the most established and popular Open Source Communications platform in the World – it has, over more recent years, expanded in scope to embrace Open Source Communications in general and, as I have mentioned in previous posts, we are delighted to have members of the FreeSWITCH team coming to AstriCon, and folk from the Kamailio, Homer and OpenSIPS projects too!

I recently joined Ken Rice of the FreeSWITCH team on their ClueCon Weekly show to talk about AstriCon.

Anthony Minessale and Brian West (from FreeSWITCH) will be speaking on Wednesday the 4th of October at 3:00pm eastern time and Anthony also will be a guest on a panel about the challenges of running an open-source project at 1:30pm eastern time on October 5th.

There are many firsts this year at AstriCon this year, one of them is that the ClueCon Weekly show will actually be coming live from AstriCon this year:

The Open Source Showcase on the Expo floor of AstriCon is set to feature 10 (yes, TEN) Open Source Projects this year – more than ever before.

In addition to the projects mentioned above, we are expecting Wazo, FreeSide, CGRatesIssabel and – of course – the most popular Asterisk-based distribution, FreePBX to be represented.

Time is running out to get your AstriCon pass, if you’ve not already done so, here:

See you in Orlando!
