Had a great time visiting with members of the open source VoIP community in Fort Lauderdale for open source world / itexpo 2020.

I was excited to discuss Kamailio and other aspects of communication as well as get some important hardware discussions in person… it’s an interesting time as hardware and software vendors seem to be merging left and right.

One of the bigger news items for the week including another acquisition— in this case e4 by Sangoma. I’ve been a long-term e4 customer and have recommended Mike and his crew to all of my clients for more than a decade. Mike is a good friend and I have 0 doubts of his dedication and support for open source.

My highlights of the trip? Spending time with friends, introducing AnneMarie to the community, and holding a very shy girl during dinner.
