Well, 2020 is certainly a strange year… Some of us have been working from home for a very long time while others are now just understanding the benefits. Of course, when a drastic change in work environment becomes a forced change, the implementation can be quite daunting.
From February 11th through 15th, 2020, Open Source World (or open source summit?) will be colocated at ITEXPO 2020 in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
This year, I will be speaking the gospel of Kamailio with a presentation entitled, “Using Kamailio to Secure Your Communications” (currently scheduled for February 13th at 3pm).
What previously had been Asterisk World has been replaced with Open Source World… and has attracted an incredible array of speakers from the open source RTC community; including Dan Jenkins, Lorenzo Mangani, Anthony Minessale, Nir Simionovich, Jared Smith, James Body, David Duffett, Allison Smith, Eric Klein, and more! (see full speaker list)
A great group of people in a great location for sure. And, yes… there will be Kamailio cookies.
I look forward to meeting you in Fort Lauderdale and talking about Kamailio, open source RTC, and more.
Did you catch Fred Posner on FLOSS Weekly discussing Kamailio?
FLOSS all about Free Libre Open Source Software. Hosted by Randal Schwartz and his rotating panel of co-hosts every Wednesday as they talk with the most interesting and important people in the Open Source and Free Software community.
Fred was honored to discuss Kamailio with this group and would join them again in a heartbeat.
In just a couple weeks, the Mrs. and I will be headed back to Berlin for Kamailio World. Last year, we visited for the first time and Berlin truly made an amazing impression.
Yeni and I have always shared different views on punctuality, so visiting a city where timeliness actually means something had me in a great mood. Food was great, pricing was amazing, and transportation was easy.
To gear up for the trip last year, we upgraded our credit card to a card with no foreign transaction fees; and then found most places we visited in the city (as well as Germany as a whole) preferred cash.
I asked why people rarely used credit cards and the answer was both simple and representative of a different way of approaching privacy…
Where I spend my money is my business only.answer to why credit cards are rarely used in Germany
As I get ready to head back I’ll need to remember to bring cash.
It’s not too late to make plans to visit Berlin this May and join us at Kamailio World 2018.
Kamailio World allows Kamailians, VoIP enthusiasts, and more to Connect, Inspire, and Create during an amazing conference. Last year, Yeni and I flew out for the first time and I only regretted not attending before.
I am lucky (and honored) to attend many VoIP conferences throughout the year and Kamailio World is on my must attend list for a simple reason— the ability to connect with this amazing community will inspire you to create something amazing.
Last year, Yeni and I crossed some items off her bucket list; most importantly visiting Castle Neuschwanstein and making it to Europe. I was able to attend a Kamailio World which exceeded all of by greatest expectations (I’ve already blocked out 2018).
