Report about the great Kamailio Developer Meeting 2019 in Düsseldorf.

About the Kamailio Developer Meeting

Middle of November (14th to 15th) 2019 the second edition of the Kamailio developer meeting happened. 16 Kamailio developers came together in Düsseldorf (Germany) to spend two days hacking on the Kamailio code. We were happy that sipgate offered to sponsor the event venue in their offices in Düsseldorf again. This time we got a more detailed overview about their system monitoring and we were also able to enjoy there good food during lunch time.

At Thursday sipgate invited us in the evening to their own company pub "Hafenquelle", were we shared some great pizza and had a few cold drinks. Several colleagues from sipgate and other Kamailio community members joined us during the evening as well. It was a great evening to socialize, discuss and share interesting stories.

Many thanks to sipgate for sponsoring the event and the other companies that covered their expenses for the participants.

Results of the meeting

Comparing to the last year edition we spent much more time discussing different topics and working together. This might be one of the benefits that this year we were a more diverse and also larger group of people. I really enjoyed to meet new and old members of your project community, working together and getting to know each other better.

These were the main topics which were worked on:

  • Kamailio code and architecture
  • improving the Kamailio RPM packaging
  • Kamailio tools (kamctl)
  • documenting, automating and improving the Kamailio release process
  • Kamailio project keys (to be used to sign the packages)

Giacomo Vacca created a great summary of the discussed topics. You find it at his blog: link
