The Asterisk Community Conference 2016 was a resounding success, with speakers, partners and delegates describing the event as “fantastic”.  The event took place in Johannesburg on 16 and 17 February and was the first-ever Digium endorsed Asterisk community gathering in Africa.

Delegates enjoyed training, discussions, presentations and exhibitions from South Africa’s top Asterisk companies, and listened to many prominent international speakers.

“Asterisk really is taking the world by storm, and what a great conference,” said Aki Anastasiou of Talk Radio 702 who was one of the speakers at the event.


“It was very well-attended”

The conference attendance exceeded expectations, with many attendees gathering from around Africa to meet international industry leaders.

David Duffett of Digium, one of the international speakers at the conference, said that it was “great to see so many people gathering from around Africa."

“We’ve got people here from Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique as well as South Africa here, and it’s nice to see the community gathering, having a conversation and looking at all the opportunities there are around Asterisk.”

Diego Gosmar of xCally added that, “We already have quite a few customers in Africa, but it was amazing to share the vision of our products and the future of the Asterisk technology with other South Africans and others from around the continent.”
