Do not forget about the next Kamailio World Conference, taking place in Berlin, Germany, during May 6-8, 2019. The registration is open!
Thanks for flying Kamailio!
Like at the previous editions, the event spans over three days, May 6-8, 2019, taking place at our usual venue, in the hearth of Berlin city, Germany. The first day contains the technical tutorials, the following two days are for conference presentations and exhibition.
With this edition, we are introducing a new social networking event during the evening of the first day, the 6th of May. The goal is to allow more time for interaction and networking between participants, as well as get a taste of Berlin. Therefore, this event is organized outside of the conference venue, couple of options being considered at this time, like city tour by boat or double deck bus, pub or pizza party. The cocktail party will take place as usual, during the evening of the 2nd day, the 7th of May. More updates about this new social networking event in the near future!
Note also that the Call For Speakers is still in progress and we already have a consistent group of submissions, if you plan to present at Kamailio World 2019, hurry up with the proposal! Scalability and security, WebRTC, IMS and VoLTE or IoT with Kamailio as well as related projects such as Asterisk or FreeSwitch are among the topics to be covered this year.
Keep an eye on the website of the event, soon we will publish more details about accepted speakers and the first draft of the agenda.
Looking forward to meeting many of you in Berlin at Kamailio World 2019!
It’s not just that Fort Lauderdale, FL, is a rather nice place to go at this time of year… No, we have some amazing sessions for you at Asterisk World

TADHack-mini Orlando 2019 runs on the 16-17 March, at Collaborative Design Center (Building 10, 3rd floor) at Valencia College, West Campus.
A TADHack is an event in which people (e.g. students, graphic designers, project managers, product managers, IT Managers, Enterprise Connect attendees, computer programmers, interested individuals, and subject-matter-experts) collaborate on a software project focused on programmable telecoms. You do not need to be a coder to take part.
TADHack is the weekend before Enterprise Connect 2019, so while everyone travels into The Enterprise Telecoms (sorry, Communications) event of the year; they get to see the sponsors of TADHack-mini Orlando showing how easy their technology can be used to solve a variety of problems people face in their everyday lives. Its not just APIs, through management consoles you can integrate applications, set up workflows all with no programming expertise. That’s why we emphasize TADHack is for Everyone!
You can see all weâ€™ve achieved over the past 5 years with TADHack in this weblog.
Here are the excellent results from last yearâ€™s TADHack-mini Orlando 2018, well done to everyone who took part. The winners had great fun attending Enterprise Connect 2018, as you can see in the picture below and in this album.
We encourage people who can not attend TADHack in person in Orlando to take part remotely. We’ve had some really funny remote pitches, check out BURBUDY by Mike Dauphinais.
Winners and runners up from TADHack-mini Orlando 2019 can also give their pitch on Monday 18th March to the entire Enterprise Connect audience, its a great opportunity.
TADHack is all about learning, sharing, coding (you can even avoid this with some of the GUIs / management consoles), creating, and most importantly having fun with a diverse group of people. And if that is not enough to entice you, we have lots of cash prizes, free entrance, and free food.

Fosdem 2019 is approaching, so we surveying to see who from the community plans to go to the event. We also plan to organize again a dinner on Saturday evening, a tradition for our project at the past 10 editions or even more.
Henning Westerholt will give a presentation about Kamailio in the RTC Devroom.
Several other developers plan to go to the conference as well, among them Daniel-Constantin Mierla, Federico Cabiddu and Alexandr Dubovikov, therefore we open here the invitation to join for everyone in our community. Of course, at Fosdem will be developers from other VoIP projects, like Asterisk, Janus, CGRates, Homer, Jitsi, …
At the past editions we typically had two “kamailio” events:
If you plan to go to Fosdem and want to join the dinner, announce yourself on email@example.com mailing list. Just be aware that you have to pay for your food and drinks at the dinner, unless we are going to be surprised again by a generous sponsor that covers partially or completely to dinner.

VUC was started in 2007 and remains an open interactive live conference. The topic of VUC734 is federation with emphasis on Diaspora.
Diaspora, founded in 2010, is a nonprofit, user-owned, distributed social network that is based upon the free Diaspora software. Diaspora consists of a group of independently owned nodes (called pods) which interoperate to form the network. The Diaspora social network is constructed of a network of nodes, or pods, hosted by many different individuals and institutions. Each node operates a copy of the Diaspora software acting as a personal web server. Users of the network can host a pod on their own server or create an account on any existing pod of their choice, and from that pod can interact with other users on all other pods.
Participate during the conference:

Our guest this week combines my two loves, music and technology. We welcome Pauline Eveno, co-founder of Syos, an innovation award-winning Paris company that makes custom mouthpieces by the 3D printing process. Syos mouthpieces were born at Ircam, the worldwide reference in terms of research on music and sound technologies. The meeting between Pauline, specialist of wind instruments, and Maxime, auditory perception expert, inspired the creation and development of a new and original way of crafting instruments.

These projects allow children in Spain to have a video chat with Santa Claus or one of The Three Wise Men.
This is a non-profit initiative, part of a larger project, which is funded with the support of different charities and several town councils. It was launched a couple of years ago and it has grown tremendously, with more and more councils getting on board every year.
Below is an example of a 3 Los Reyes Magos (3 Wise Men) call:
Over the past Christmas season, over 10.000 video calls were processed, mostly from Spain but many of them from Argentina and Mexico too. That is impressive, to say the least.
Something we found fascinating is that this year participants will be able to interact via sign language, in addition to audio and video. In order to better present this to users they are using the recently introduced Brady Bunch Layout. We certainly never had this use case in mind when Brady Bunch was built, but you can see how this feature is critical for some use cases!
We’ve known Javi Arranz, CEO of Eternity Online and the mastermind behind this project for a while now. He is deeply involved in several charitable efforts in Spain. Javi wouldn’t stop praising Jitsi, claiming he couldn’t have done it without it.
We are incredibly proud and humbled that Open Source technology produced by the Jitsi community is used in such wonderful and noble projects.

When preparing the latest major release of Kamailio (the v5.2.0) and the days after, I run some tests to compare the performances of using native scripting versus Lua and Python (v2). The tests were not focused on measuring the capacity of Kamailio, but to see the difference in executing similar SIP routing logic with different scripting languages.
The results and conclusions are collected in a wiki page:
It was pleasant to discover that native scripting, Lua and Python perform more or less the same, the differences are so small that can be just a side effect of what other applications are running at that moment in the system. The tests were related to processing registrations with user authentication, using MySQL as a backend.
A test consisted of 20 000 registrations for 10 users being sent at a rate of 4000 requests/second, with a limit of 10 000 at the same time. Note that each registration was challenged for authentication and resent with credentials, then authenticated (this performs a MySQL query) and replied with 200ok. The average of running the routing script ranged form 60 to 80 microseconds, most of them being around 70 microseconds (for a better understanding, that means more than 10 000 authenticated registrations per second).
The wiki page includes the sipp scenario, used configs and tools to perform the tests, therefore anyone can try to run and check the results.
A bit of a surprise was to see that Python has really good results. I ran couple of basic tests during the development of KEMI framework for Kamailio 5.0 and using Python seemed slower. Not this time, so I will have to re-run the tests just to be sure I haven’t forgotten something.
Anyhow, during the development of Kamailio 5.2, there were couple of additions to KEMI to improve the performances. Among the most relevant were to export several functions that are equivalent to some native scripting language conditions, such as matching From/To URIs against myself keyword or matching the SIP methods.
Should you run the tests from the wiki, let us know the results for your environment via firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
Thanks for flying Kamailio!

What can we control in life, technology, on and offline?
Covered this week:
Google Cemetery – what its “deprecated” and lost over the years
Phone numbers – Toll frees, 800, 888, 877 and the proposed new 833s
Losing your phone number means losing control
Facebook, Diaspora and Mastodon. Federation FTW
Great tip – use alternative Apps for ALL social media that work through APIs and lose the dross!
We plan to talk about storage options, but anything is possible.
The packages of Kamailio v5.2.0 for Debian/Ubuntu and RPM-based distributions (CentOS, RedHat, OpenSuse, Fedora) are available to use.
For Debian/Ubuntu, you can set the APT repository on your system to the links provided at:

On this episode of the Communications Transformed podcast, Randy chats to Emil Ivov, Jitsi’s Founder and Project Lead. Emil talks about how Jitsi got started and how open source has been the cornerstone of our success. Trips down Memory Lane are always cool so tune in now for part one of this two-part episode.
We are considering to release v5.2.0 (the first stable version out of branch 5.2) next week, likely on Wednesday, Nov 28, 2018.
It still allows a bit more than a week of testing as well as well time to prepare the online resources for it (documentation, wiki pages, upgrade guidelines, etc…).
If there is any issue you are of and not yet reported to github.com bug tracker, do it as soon as possible to give it a chance to be fixed in time for the next major release.

As soon as Google announced the sunset of their failed social network, Google+ denizens began looking at alternatives. Thereâ€™s plenty of time, the closure is scheduled for August 2019! Still, why invest any further time in a dying network? This week we talk about the many ways to communicate via open source platforms and software, especially the federated ones like Diaspora (and variants). An important step was taken with the creation of Pluspora, a Diaspora pod. This has already attracted thousands of former (and current) Google+ denizens. We’ll talk about how and why this was done with one or more of the creators.
Matrix describes itself: An open network for secure, decentralized communication. Here at VUC we’ve known and admired Matthew Hodges, Amandine and some of the team for a while. We were lucky to run into Ben Parsons at TAD Hack and also online moments before we went live. The original topic of Diaspora will be rescheduled.
Privacy is particularly critical for a decentralized network like Matrix, where user data is replicated over all the servers participating in a room and so must be protected. Matrix provides state of the art end-to-end encryption in beta using the Olm and Megolm cryptographic ratchets, and ensuring that only explicitly authorized devices can participate in a conversation.

TADHack is a series of hackathons that run around the world to help people learn about the latest Internet, IT, and Telecoms technologies; and most importantly use those technologies to solve problems that matter to them. In this weblog we review 5 years of TADHack, summing up its achievements from around the world.
To quote Barbara Mikulski, “Each one of us can make a difference. Together we make change.” We’re focused on improving people’s lives around the world using technology, through helping everyone who takes part in TADHack.
One of TADHack’s founding principles is diversity. We were one of the first hackathons to encouraged anyone to take part, not just coders. TADHack has proven year after year that diverse teams win, and then go on to make their ideas reality, and change the world for the better. We’re extending TADHack into support skunkworks projects in 2019, more on that soon, to make it easier for even more people to get involved.
We run 2 types of hackathon.
TADHack has run across over 44 countries including: Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bulgaria, Brasil, Canada, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Turkey, UK, Ukraine, Uruguay, USA, Zambia. Sorry if I forgot yours.
And multiple cities in some of those countries, that’s over 100 cities involved in TADHack.
We’ve had over 11,400 registrations.
Well over 1000 pitches have been given at TADHack.
We’ve awarded over $250k in prize money. Plus an additional $100k+ in goodies and vouchers.
84 sponsors have made TADHack possible. And over 150 partners running locations, including 16 Universities.
This has created over 700 YouTube videos of pitches, with 200k+ minutes of viewing, some videos have been viewed over 5000 times.
We’ve had over 1 million tweet impressions.
11 companies have been founded by teams involved in TADHack.
We know of 46 people we’ve helped with their job search. And 100s more add TADHack to their resume and LinkedIn profile.
19 services have been launched hacks created at TADHack.
And people from ages 14 to 85 have taken part!
“Each one of us can make a difference. Together we make change,” by helping everyone involved in TADHack solve problems that matter to them using the latest Internet, IT, and Telecoms technologies.
Thank you to everyone who has taken part in TADHack over the past 5 years. We look forward to working with you in 2019. We’re working on some exciting plans for 2019 to help TADHack reach many more people and have a bigger impact within the countries that run a TADHack.
Best wishes for 2019.
TADHack-mini Orlando is scheduled for 16-17 March 2019

SignalWire delivers a cloud platform for building advanced communications products, applications, or enterprise infrastructure. Their APIs enable rapid application development on a managed elastic framework.
With the creation of branch 5.2 done yesterday, the master branch is from now on open for adding new features, to be part of future release series v5.3.x.
Based on the workflow used during the past years, the next future release v5.3.0 should be out after another 8-10 months of development, plus 1-2 months of testing, so sometime in the summer or autumn of 2019.
Even now there is a new pull request on its way to be merged in master branch that is adding a new module – the rtp_media_server:
So the new development cycle is starting very promising. Expect plenty of enhancements and new feature during the development of v5.3 series.
Thanks for flying Kamailio!
The branch 5.2 has been created in the git repository of Kamailio, to be used for releasing v5.2.x series.
To check out this branch, the following commands can be used:
git clone https://github.com/kamailio/kamailio kamailio-5.2 cd kamailio-5.2 git checkout -b 5.2 origin/5.2
Pushing commits in this branch:
git push origin 5.2:5.2
Note that 5.2 is an official stable branch, so only bug fixes, missing kemi exports (to be discussed on sr-dev if something needs to be sorted out about the purpose of the exports) or improvements to documentation or helper tools will be pushed to this branch.
As usual, if there is a bug fixed, the commit will be pushed first to master branch and then cherry picked to 5.2 branch.
In few weeks, the first release from branch 5.2 will be out, respectively Kamailio v5.2.0.
Thanks for flying Kamailio!
<Editors Note: This weblog was written by team RM5 (Juan Daza, Camilo Segura, Mauricio Maca) from TADHack Popayán who created the hack Dnuncia Platform that won the Status Global Prize.>
First of all, we want to send a HUGE ‘Thank You’ to Alan and to Status Team, not only for the prize that we appreciate too, but the opportunity to share our problem to the world.
In our country is common to see political repression in many manifestations and strikes being frequent all kind of violence against the crowd, this is a way to spread the fear in the people so you think in is a good idea stay at home.
At this moment, there’s a big trouble with public education, first, our minimum wage is about $250 USD and 6 month in private college cost around $2000 usd, so our government have money to finance public education but all that resources go to ICETEX, that is a bank who makes a loan to pay your private college, the problem is the extremely high interests, therefore we don’t want to our taxes go to a semi-private organization instead to the public college. For that reason all the students are taking the streets in a pacific way, we’re totally opposed to make it in a violent way.
The people use to upload all photos to popular social networks, but you can only show and say: ’¡Que pecao con ese pobre muchacho!’ (What a shame with that poor guy!) so we want to change this. Another thing is that in some country the government can censor what you can upload.
For that reason we make a platform who allow you post your photos denouncing the attacks, it’s decentralized so the government can’t censor anything, but you can’t upload bad things, like nudes. The platform connect you with lawyers that help you to make a formal complaint. So the next time before that guy thinks in beat some students he calm down and think about the economic repercussion.
Dnuncia is a flexible platform that combines the impact of new technologies like BlockChain, with an interactive and intuitive GUI, where the users will learn to use easily all the system functions, the principal one is how can you post your problems?, now it will show about how do this process:
1. First has the authentication interface, where the user must upload a photo doing a gesture selected by the platform randomly, the auth screen has the function of recognize the gesture through a neuronal network, to verify that the user that wish enter to the platform be a human (because the bots are the principal cause of fake news, and other problems), yeah we should use some bootstrap but this was the last feature and we was short of time :
2. This is the principal interface, here, the user starts the process to do a public complaint, it can see the option + for add a new post about some problem that the user has had with the authority or some other similar one:
When the + button is pressed appears a small field so:
There are two text inputs, first one is the post title, and the second input was made for do a more detailed description of the problem, also there is a file input, for upload photos and media files related with the post, when the user has completed all the inputs, can post doing click over the PUBLISH button.
3. In the principal screen will appear all the posts written for the other users and the own posts, also each post has a special button for contribute to the problem, for example this option is so important for lawyers, and people that wants to offer their services for resolve each situation.
4. There are other options like search, or sort the posts, but these functionalities are available when more users start to use the platform.
Finally, we just want to say that you HAVE TO participate in one Hackathon at least one time in your life even if you don’t know how to code, WHY? Because you make a lot of contacts and networking, if you don’t know how to write a hello world in any language, but have a lot of energy and a great idea you can immediately found a guy or girl that complements you, and we are talking about skills. And when you achieve the success and be on the top of the hill, remember make the same thing for the ones that are behind you, put some wings on the people and deliver hope just like Alan Quayle and Status made for us.
Three young nerds full of energy and knowledge in blockchain, machine learning and mobile development we can stay in contact if you need to ask anything about our experience in the Hackathon: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
P.S there are some pics of October 31, we take the streets with costumes, it was fun and brave!

FOSDEM is one of the world's premier meetings of free software developers, with over five thousand people attending each year. FOSDEM 2019 takes place 2-3 February 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.
This email contains information about:
The Real-Time Communications dev-room and Real-Time lounge is about all things involving real-time communication, including: XMPP, SIP, WebRTC, telephony, mobile VoIP, codecs, peer-to-peer, privacy and encryption. The dev-room is a successor to the previous XMPP and telephony dev-rooms. We are looking for speakers for the dev-room and volunteers and participants for the tables in the Real-Time lounge.
The dev-room is only on Sunday, 3rd of February 2019. The lounge will be present for both days.
To discuss the dev-room and lounge, please join the Free RTC mailing list.
To be kept aware of major developments in Free RTC, without being on the discussion list, please join the Free-RTC Announce list.
Note: if you used FOSDEM Pentabarf before, please use the same account/username
Real-Time Communications dev-room: deadline 23:59 UTC on 2nd of December. Please use the Pentabarf system to submit a talk proposal for the dev-room. On the "General" tab, please look for the "Track" option and choose "Real Time Communications devroom". Link to talk submission.
Other dev-rooms and lightning talks: some speakers may find their topic is in the scope of more than one dev-room. It is encouraged to apply to more than one dev-room and also consider proposing a lightning talk, but please be kind enough to tell us if you do this by filling out the notes in the form.
Main track: the deadline for main track presentations is 23:59 UTC 3 November. Leading developers in the Real-Time Communications field are encouraged to consider submitting a presentation to the main track.
FOSDEM dev-rooms are a welcoming environment for people who have never given a talk before. Please feel free to contact the dev-room administrators personally if you would like to ask any questions about it.
The Pentabarf system will ask for many of the essential details. Please remember to re-use your account from previous years if you have one.
In the "Submission notes", please tell us about:
You can use HTML and links in your bio, abstract and description.
If you maintain a blog, please consider providing us with the URL of a feed with posts tagged for your RTC-related work.
We will be looking for relevance to the conference and dev-room themes, presentations aimed at developers of free and open source software about RTC-related topics.
Please feel free to suggest a duration between 20 minutes and 55 minutes but note that the final decision on talk durations will be made by the dev-room administrators based on the received proposals. As the two previous dev-rooms have been combined into one, we may decide to give shorter slots than in previous years so that more speakers can participate.
Please note FOSDEM aims to record and live-stream all talks. The CC-BY license is used.
To make the dev-room and lounge run successfully, we are looking for volunteers:
The traditional FOSDEM beer night occurs on Friday, 1st of February.
On Saturday night, there are usually dinners associated with each of the dev-rooms. Most restaurants in Brussels are not so large so these dinners have space constraints and reservations are essential. Please subscribe to the Free-RTC mailing list for further details about the Saturday night dinner options and how you can register for a seat.
If you know of any mailing lists where this CfP would be relevant, please forward this email. If this dev-room excites you, please blog or microblog about it, especially if you are submitting a talk.

The dev-room administration team:
Today 8×8 announced it has acquired the Jitsi team and our technology from Atlassian. This is a great thing and will only help to keep Jitsi’s momentum with renewed investment. The Jitsi team will remain 100% intact and will continue to be an independent group. Operationally things will work much the same way as they did under Atlassian. Jitsi users and developers won’t see any impact, though we do expect with continued funding and support you will see even more new features and capabilities from the project!
8×8 is firmly established a cloud communications provider focus on business communications with hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue and tens of thousands of businesses of all sizes as customers. Just like Jitsi was previously used to help provide video capabilities to Atlassian’s products, we will be helping to support state-of-the-art video features in 8×8 X Series.
8×8 sees tremendous value in the open source community and is committed to helping grow the community even larger. With a major, high-motivated backer like 8×8 behind the project, we are confident about our ability to continue building great open source products.
Emil & your personal Jitsi team
