The Kamailio SIP Server project organizes another edition of developers’ meeting during November 16-17, 2022.
The event is hosted by sipgate.de at their premises in Düsseldorf – the address:
Gladbacher Str. 74
A note on a related event: on the evening of the 16th of November we plan a public RTC meetup. Anyone involved in the RTC space can join the event, even when not participating to Kamailio Developers Meeting during the day. More details soon!
Purpose of the Kamailio Developers Meeting
The purpose of the event is to support the interaction between developers and to offer a great environment to work together on relevant topics related to the Kamailio project. It is intended for participants that want to write code for Kamailio and its tools or improve the documentation. There will be no formal presentations, only open discussions, coding or documentation writing sessions.
At the moment of announcement, the following active Kamailio developers and community members plan to join the event:
- Alexandr Dubovikov
- Daniel Constantin Mierla
- Federico Cabiddu
- Henning Westerholt
- Markus Monka
We welcome other developers or community members to join us! Please join only if you want to work on Kamailio code or documentation during this two days. It is not an event for learning how to use Kamailio.
sipgate.de is also sponsoring the event food and drinks during the days at the venue. The costs of the trip (traveling, accommodation, health insurance, visa costs, etc.) must be covered by each participant. However, if you need some support with your travelling expenses, let us know and we will try to find a solution case by case.
How to participate
If you want to participate then please send an email to <firstname.lastname@example.org>, providing the following details:

Based on feedback of the participants, we will try to plan and publish a more detailed agenda for the two days.

A selection of topics intended to be addressed:
