Fosdem 2018 is gone, what a great edition! It is well known by now that most of the relevant projects in Free and Open Source Softwares, at least in Europe, get together in Brussels those days. I haven’t seen the official figures, but the rumors were projecting about 14 000 participants.

With Kamailio happens the same, many of our developers (counted about 15 devs) and community members go there, at our traditional dinner on Sunday evening, along with friends from VoIP space (Asterisk PBX, FreeSwitch, Homer SipCapture, JsSip, Janus, CGRateS), were about 35 people. Looking back on the mailing list archive, the first was done in 2009, and we did it every year, so this was the 10th edition.

We have to thank to Voxbone, they kindly sponsored the dinner this time, all being coordinated by Torrey Searle, the author of SIPT module in Kamailio.

On Sunday was the RTC Devroom, with a packed schedule of 20 presentations, covering a wide range of projects and technologies. Click on the session name to get more details, many of them have the slides uploaded already. The sessions were recorded, the videos should be published in the near future.

A session about Kamailio’s KEMI scripting languages was presented by Daniel-Constantin Mierla. Kamailio was also used to hack quickly a signaling engine for building a WebRTC gateway in the session of Julien Chavanton.

Fosdem is an event organized mainly by volunteers, the great outcome shows how much social involvement matter, no matter you can help managing the main tracks or devrooms, be at registration desk or assist the participants, do consider volunteering at the next edition. Besides the big thanks to all the organizers and volunteers, let’s also acknowledge the ones that took care to organize RTC Devroom and lounge, before or during the event: Anisa Kuci, Daniel-Constantin Mierla, Daniel Pocock, Giacomo Vacca, Henning Westerholt, Iain Learmonth, Matt Fredrickson, Ralf Meijer, Saul Ibarra Corretge and Victor Seva.

Looking forward to the next edition!

Until then, we hope to meet many of you at Kamailio World 2018!

Thanks for flying Kamailio!
