Report about the Kamailio World Online 2021
Usually all Kamailio developers and everybody in the Kamailio projects meet together in Berlin in the spring for the annual Kamailio World Conference. Unfortunately also this year this was not possible, so we decided to do a smaller conference in an online format.
The conference focussed more on talks closer to the Kamailio project and were not covering the whole set of related projects (e.g. for monitoring, call rating etc..).
The talks covered many interesting topics, from call testing at scale with Kamailio to security protection against attackers, modern development with KEMI scripting languages and even a Ask Me Anything session with the developers.
It was held on two days in the (German) afternoon to evening beginning of September. Beeing the second time that we had this online conference, the conference platform worked really well thanks to the great preparation from Daniel and Fred. Many thanks to both of them for hosting the conference and providing the necessary technical infrastructure.
In the evening we also celebrated the 20th birthday of the Kamailio project with some (distributed) cake and drinks.
Overall we had a really good participation, about 100 people were present in the sessions or watched them on youtube. The project Matrix channel were also used a lot to discuss the talks and relatedt topics.
This year I decided to give a talk about configuration language foundations. I describe the many useful pseudo-variables and transformation that can be used inside the configuration language and how they work together.
You can find the presentation slides in the archive on this page.
The talk recording is available on youtube as well. You can find it here and also below.
Overall I really liked the experience of the conference, even if of course it can not fully replace a meeting in person in a conference center etc..
But I am really happy to participated in it and looking forward to the next year edition, which maybe can happen again in Berlin.
