Atlanta Asterisk Users Group Install Fest and Conference

Hey all,

The Atlanta Asterisk User’s Group is hosting it’s third annual Install Fest and Conference at the Georgia Tech Information Security Center on April 18, 2009. The conference will run from 9 am to 4 pm that day.

This is a two-track event. One track, we will have volunteers ready to install an Asterisk-based PBX on your computer and help you get the preliminary configuration out of the way. The installation will include a free, demo trunk from IPComms in Atlanta.

The second track will be for the more advanced users including speakers and displays from Snom, Sangoma, Aastra, IPComms, CBeyond, Digium, Aretta, Pika, CentricVoice, VoiceRoute, Fonica, and PBX in a Flash.

The event is free and includes “Free Lunch” compliments of Sangoma. Come join us and meet some of the folks in our industry. If you are planning to attend, please go to and register so we know how much lunch to buy.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Shameless Bump.

We have the agenda up for the Install Fest, which is on April 18th. The Install Fest is free. Lunch is included for FREE, compliments of Sangoma. All we ask is that you pre-register, so we know how much lunch to buy.

This is a totally free event where you can meet and talk to the movers and shakers in our industry.

I look forward to seeing you there.
