Digium Announces Call for Speakers for AstriCon 2018
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., February 28, 2018 -- Digium®, Inc., the Asterisk® Company, today announced the call for speakers is now open for AstriCon 2018, its 15th annual Asterisk user conference and expo to be held Oct. 9-11 at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in Orlando, Fla. Those interested in speaking can register here. Submissions will be accepted through June 15, 2018.
Digium welcomes submissions that will be of value to those looking to build or employ communications solutions based on Asterisk. Talks can be aimed at beginners or those with more experience in using and deploying Asterisk. Topics could cover: using Asterisk in SIP infrastructure, testing and tuning Asterisk deployments, creating custom applications using the Asterisk RESTful Interface (ARI), the use of Docker and Kubernetes with Asterisk, and everything in between.
“Asterisk has expanded from being an incredibly feature-rich software PBX to being an essential communications application development environment,” said David Duffett, Worldwide Community Director for the Asterisk project. “We’re excited to see AstriCon evolve to include many other technologies that folks are using alongside Asterisk, like Kamailio, Homer and Docker. Our amazing Asterisk Community speakers, along with the exhibitors and attendees reflect the fact that Asterisk covers a massive range of applications, from standalone PBX to the critical component in making large, scalable and resilient communications solutions.”
AstriCon provides a forum where all members of the Open Source Communications community – from telephony enthusiasts to developers to businesses – can learn about the technology. Each session is delivered by Asterisk community members that are happy to share their expertise, making AstriCon a must-attend event for anyone who is serious about Asterisk.
Digium is once again pleased to partner with TMC to promote the event to a broader audience. TMC has helped support other Digium events, including Asterisk World, with training sessions, video production, attendee registration and exhibit management. Companies interested in sponsoring AstriCon and participating on the EXPO floor should contact Joe Fabiano at TMC: +1 (203) 852-6800, ext. 132.
