is making plans for the eighth annual AstriCon, the Asterisk User Conference and Expo and the event of choice for hundreds of technical pros working with the world’s leading open source communications platform. This year, from October 26-28, AstriCon will come to the Westin Westminster in Denver, Colorado. In addition to opening registration today, Digium is now accepting submissions for speaker opportunities at www.AstriCon.net
. Topics are open, but past sessions have focused on basic and advanced Asterisk tutorials, IP telephony security, call center and enterprise case studies, and product training.
Asterisk is the most widely used open source software for creating business phone systems and other communications applications. Using it, developers and other technical pros craft solutions such as IP PBXs, VoIP gateways, interactive voice response systems, conference bridges, voicemail servers and more. Asterisk also forms the basis for Digium’s award-winning Switchvox Unified Communications solution, which offers the most advanced business phone system features in a cost-effective, easy-to-use solution that scales as companies grow. The Asterisk community includes more than 65,000 members worldwide, hundreds of whom have made substantial contributions to the software’s development since its release more than 10 years ago.
In addition to AstriCon, Digium will hold developer conferences on Monday, October 24 and Friday, October 28 for Asterisk and Asterisk SCF, respectively. These two special events are open, at no cost beyond the AstriCon registration fee, to any developer who has contributed code to the Asterisk or Asterisk SCF projects. The conferences give contributors an opportunity to help define, in an interactive group of their peers, the direction of each project.
