Hello! Found out Austin has a newly formed Asterisk User Group. Let
me introduce myself (Lindsey already did, sorta). I've personally been
using/playing with Asterisk for about 3+ years (yea, early days of
the code). When VoIPing was fully engaged (we're only taking select
clients now) we had several VoIP customers in town. We did a larger
install/customization at a local company (60+ phones) and when I worked
at another startup, I replaced their TDM PBX (that was undersized) with
a complete Asterisk PBX.
Although I don't have a lot of recent time to be playing with Asterisk,
I keep current on the comings and goings of the project. A good friend
of mine, Gil Kloepfer, is also extremely versed with Asterisk and
has done several presentations at CACTUS. Gil got interested in Asterisk
through my interactions and has recently taken it to the "n-th degree" at
his current employer. Gil is an active bug-tracker/submitter and has
made FreeBSD compatibility even more successful.
Last year, at the first annual Astricon, I was a speaker and it had
a very large turnout. The 2nd annual (USA) Astricon just recently
happened, but I was unable to attend.
Presentations from that event are available at:
Specifically mine was:
Photos from that event are available at:
Gil, Brian and myself have Asterisk Installations at home using
Cisco, Polycom, SoftPhones, Sipuras, and IAX/SIP providers.
I'd be happy to do a presentation at an upcoming A*UG ...
Thanks for starting this group, I'll be e-mailing some of my cohorts
and letting them know about it, as well.
Talk to everyone soon,
