With thousands of new downloads per day, millions of deployments, and a community of more than 65,000 members, the acceptance and growth of Asterisk has spawned an ecosystem spanning more than 170 countries. AstriCon gives all members of the Asterisk community—from telephony enthusiasts to people betting their businesses on the booming appeal of Asterisk communications—a forum to learn about the technology in depth, to discuss its newest uses and to meet potential collaborators.
Mark Spencer, Digium’s CTO and creator of Asterisk, said: “AstriCon 2009 was a total success as Asterisk has moved into mainstream use in phone systems used by organizations of all sizes. The ability to get together with so many Asterisk users to exchange ideas is always invaluable to Digium and we continue to be grateful for our community’s strong support. Looking ahead to AstriCon 2010, in addition to technical sessions, we expect to focus on use of Asterisk in commerce, in the cloud, by government agencies and larger enterprises, call centers, and more.”
