VoN Europe 2007

The last VoN in Europe provided another great chance to meet people around the project, learn about latest trends in VoIP and discuss latest businesses in the area.

OpenSER had itself one hour session in the main theater of VoN Exhibition, giving opportunity to present a summary of the project, the status of WeSIP application server, FMC solutions based on OpenSER, as well as the strong bullets brought by 1.2.x release.

The VoN seemed quite this time, some noise around P2PSIP and peering, a lot of FMC discussions, less and less IMS interest. Despite that, we had very nice meetings with VoIPUser friends and open source VoIP developers.

Slides from OpenSER BoF and photos from the event to be made available soon.

OpenSER Advanced Programming Course 2007

Between the 4th and 6th of June 2007, INRIA, the IT research institute of France, hosted in Paris the first edition of OpenSER Advanced Programming Course. The teachers were myself and Bogdan-Andrei Iancu.

We focused on the internals of OpenSER application, touching delicate subjects as memory manager, locking system, data lumps, pseudo-variables, module development a.s.o. The three days were a good opportunity to discuss also about future plans, what should be nice to have, where is the current bottle neck. All agreed that some work in interfacing with database has to be done, maybe some efforts to make parts of script reloading, lumps applying, and, if possible, some asynchronous processing in regard to TCP and DNS.

The attendants span several countries: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Germany, Italy, UK, Romania, Sweden, and, of course, France.

OpenSER at LinuxTag 2007

The full four days at LinuxTag in Berlin, Germany, were an opportunity to meet old folks from the FhG FOKUS Institute, were our trip in VoIP started back in 2001-2002.

The show itself was pretty well organized, with high quality exhibition booths and good presentation. You could see the German style around, even for Open Source, everything has to be perfect.

The VoIP was quite poor represented there, in our corner we were colleagues only with Asterisk, bringing a lot of questions like: "What is the difference between?". We met several OpenSER friends, some time was spent with the squad from SunCC compiler, trying to fix some issues encountering when using this tool with some architecture specific code on Linux.

Next year, the event will be taking place on the same location, allowing more time for advertising. As a plan, will be trial of VoIPing the exhibition infrastructure, so that you can get a device and listen the speeches from your booth or while spinning around.

Some pictures will be posted soon.
