Astricon 2019 thoughts

Astricon 2019 banner is at the top of the forum page; anyone going? To be honest, the event looks pretty thin this year. A lot of the draw for me to any conference is the hands-on tech sessions and access to engineering folks, but it looks like that has been cut out somewhat. (What happened to Astri-DevCon?) What’s the feel for this year’s show? All marketing, or is there going to be a good tech component?

AstriDevCon is continuing this year with details on the wiki[1]. The open source track should have some technical level talks, and developers will be around to run into.

Sadly I’m unable to attend this year.

Astricon has always been one of my favorite conventions, I’ve been attending for over a decade and it’s certainly become more business oriented over the years.

I miss stuff like the Hackathon and Fastest Dude contests, Last years thing with the Quiz was very involved looking but I wasn’t able to find anyone to do it with.

I ended up seated for lunch at a table with Matt Jordan, Tony Lewis , and a bunch of Sangoma and Digium guys last year which was cool.
