Digium invites developers who are interested in the future of Asterisk to join us at AstriDevCon on Tuesday, September 27th, 2016.
AstriDevCon is an annual event, held alongside AstriCon - it includes an in-depth review of progress made in the past year and an open discussion about the future direction of the project. The event is free and open for any active Asterisk community developer to apply for attendance. It's a great opportunity to meet the core development team in person, pitch ideas for new features and functions and coordinate efforts with others.
Capacity for this event is limited. Preference will be made for those who are active and participating in the Asterisk development community by contributing, reviewing, testing and so forth. Otherwise it's first come first serve, so apply for registration soon.
AstriDevCon 2016 will have a delicious lunch sponsored by Bluehost. Jared Smith will be in attendance and representing.

Details on the hotel and location of AstriCon 2016 can be found at the Asterisk project website.
What To Bring
While the room should have plenty of power strips and extension cords; being well prepared with a power adapter and a short extension cord is always a good idea.
If you are giving a presentation then be sure to bring any cables you might need to connect to a projector.
Registering for AstriDevCon
An e-mail will be sent to you if your registration is accepted. Acceptance decisions will be made no later than September 7th, 2016. Registration requests made after that date will still be considered, but are subject to rejection if room is not available.
SIP URI: sip:firstname.lastname@example.org or sip:email@example.com
We'll be using IRC during the AstriDevCon for out of band discussion, and may be taking some questions or participation from the channel. Keep in mind that it is hard to have a synchronous conversation between those present and speaking and those in the channel, so don't take it too hard if your question doesn't get brought up from the channel. We'll do our best.
