Cooking With Asterisk (Video)

And I found the Cooking With Asterisk presentation as well! Apologies for the low quality on the video (as this one has a lot more text than the Distributed Call Centre video), but you can follow along with the presentation on your screen as available on my website at:

And the presentation along with the demo configuration files is available on my website at:

#AstriCon 2011 Quote of the Conference (@abalashov)

I think the best quote I heard the entire time came from @abalashov (Alex Balashov) during the AstriDevCon when we were talking about Asterisk documentation, and how we might better organize it within the source.

We were discussing perhaps moving some of the existing configuration file examples to a manpage, and Alex piped up to say, “Manpages are a vestige of our glorious, prehensile, curly-tailed past.”

There wasn’t much left to be said after that 🙂

AstriCon presentation today at 11:40am

I’ll be speaking at AstriCon today (and tomorrow) about building a distributed call centre. The presentation will be 35 minutes long and will contain a set of slides that moves you from an existing traditional PBX system up through a distributed model (which happens to use a call centre as the example system).

A PDF of the presentation along with the configuration files from the demo will be available on my website after the presentation. I’ll post links to the files on my blog here shortly after the presentation finishes.

Hope to see you there!

Video of ‘5 Things You Didn’t Know Asterisk Could Do’ Presentation Now Available

Check out the AstriCon website for my presentation that was recorded this year. I did three presentations this year (5 Things You Didn’t Know Asterisk Could Do, Distributed Call Centres, and the Asterisk Project Update with Russell Bryant) but unfortunately the only one I see so far is the 5 Things presentation (which is a very good presentation! :))

The link to the presentations are here: http://www.astricon.net/videoPresentations.aspx#Digium7 with mine being at the top of the list.

My Presentations from AstriCon 2010 are Available

Check out http://leifmadsen.com and click on the presentations tab. Under that tab you will find my presentations from AstriCon 2010,  ‘5 Things You Didn’t Know Asterisk Could Do‘ and a slightly updated version of my ‘Building Distributed Queue Systems‘ presentation. Both are in PDF format.

Both presentations went over extremely well, and I think both probably ended up being, or nearly being, my best presentations ever given. In previous years I’ve given presentations on distributed Asterisk systems and last year at IT360 I gave my  “5 Things You Didn’t Know Asterisk Could Do” presentation, so perhaps being somewhat familiar with the format helped. I completely rewrote the ‘5 Things‘ chapter though, so you’ll find some cool new information there if you’ve previously seen me give it.

The presentations were also video taped, so I’m really hoping that the AstriCon people will get those made available soon. I myself want to see if I’m just dreaming about how well I did 🙂
