Conference Schedule Published

Olle E. Johansson, the content manager for AstriCon 2005 has published the schedule for the Conference days (October 13 & 14) on the AstriCon site. The first day has been divided into three tracks covering the three largest segments of the Asterisk community: Business/Enterprise Users, Service Providers and Call Centers. The second day is a single track made up of keynotes, case studies, and industry perspectives from developers and power users including Mark Spencer (creator of Asterisk), Jason Talley (CEO of Nuvio) and Ed Guy (CTO of Pulver/FWD).

A basic version of the schedule is included below for your convenience. Additional information will be added to the on-line schedule in the next week, including the Tutorial schedule and the Pre-Conference Event schedule. Check back from time to time to see what's been added.


Exhibit Hall Nearly Full

The AstriCon Exhibition is filling up rapidly. We currently have more than 20 exhibitors and sponsors. This year's exhibit hall includes a Product Demonstration Theater which provides an opportunity to see some of the many Asterisk-based and Asterisk-related products in action. We have also added the Open Source Showcase, a group of exhibits demonstrating some of the many open source projects which add value and functionality to Asterisk.
