"Future of Open Source Communications" @ #Digium #Astricon http://snapvoip.blogspot.com/
Digium revealed today that Kevin Fleming, director of software technologies, will be delivering a keynote speech cum presentation regarding the future of open source communications software at the AstriCon 2010, which will be the seventh annual AstriCon Open Source Telephony Conference and Exhibition, taking place from October 26-28, 2010, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.
I plan to be at the conference and I will attend presentation. Fleming's keynote takes place on Wednesday, October 27 at 9:00 a.m. ET. This is not the first such keynote and seem to be a tradition of AstriCon. The last was presented by Sean Michael Kerner, "The Future of Open Source VoIP is Asterisk 1.6" in 2007.
As we all know, Asterisk is the forefront of Open source telephony and I have been attending the conference every year since the beginning. This is the place where telephony developers, telephony and unified communications experts, resellers and VARs, and Asterisk enthusiasts come together to gain and share knowledge.
"Asterisk has been an industry-changing open source project that has grown with the support of an active and thriving community, We believe that the news we're sharing at AstriCon will further the disruption of the communications industry, as Asterisk did with its original release, and demonstrate Digium's commitment to taking open source communications in an exciting direction for the Asterisk Community." said Fleming, who has helped manage and define Asterisk's direction since he joined Digium in 2005
