Report about the Kamailio World Online 2022
Usually all Kamailio developers and everybody in the Kamailio projects meet together in Berlin in the spring for the annual Kamailio World Conference. Due to the unclear and constantly changing situation regarding the Corona virus situation, it was again 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 a new TLS module based on an alternative SSL library, several talks related to 5G/VoLTE infrastructure with Kamailio towards best practises for operation and deployment.
It was held on two days in the (German) afternoon to evening beginning of September. Beeing the third 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 21th 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 a topic related to infrastructure operation. I describe different scenarios and approaches one could use to manage Kamailio servers and their configuration. We use this approach in different projects with configuration management tools like ansible or docker container.
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. My talk starts around 1h, 7m.
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 should happen again in Berlin.
