LVUG is a forum for people who are interested in VoIP protocols and open source VoIP software. Think SIP, WebRTC, FreeSWITCH, Kamailio, Asterisk, OpenSER, OpenSIPS, SEMS. 

This is our first meetup and will be an informal get together to kick things off over beers in east London.

    Hi folks. Thanks for the great evening. Sorry for the delay in follow up. We'll do it again late June. Any ideas for talks please share here or drop me an email (r.n.brady at gmail). Are there any people who have not tried FreeSWITCH yet and would be interested in a short intro to how it works and what sets it apart?

    For future meetings I believe there were proposals for some initial talks before we hit the pub, which I believe is a good idea.

    As it is true that not all possible topics to discuss are going to be relevant or interesting to everybody here, perhaps we could come up with some initial proposals for talking points and then we can all vote on those which we think may be most interesting for the majority of us, and then finally get to talk about the top 2-3 most voted topics, maybe? Well, I'm just throwing ideas here... In any case, we'd need good people willing to speak and contribute with their expertise on any given topic, which I'm sure wouldn't be a problem for many on the group.

    The only comment for me that would perhaps go a bit on the down side would be the fact that I found the venue a bit too loud at times and because of that I struggled a bit to hear and engage in some of the conversations going on. But apart from that, I'd say the whole thing went very well.

    Cheers!

    Hi fellas,

    It was great to see you all last night. Very nice conversation with whom I had the chance to talk to the most as well (mainly Nathan, Richard, Anand, Martyn and Dan). Hopefully, next time we can talk some more and I could mingle with other fellow group members too.

    There were some interesting topics and market trends discussed (The Kamailio/FreeSWITCH combo, WebRTC or wholesale traffic to mention but a few) and we even had a nice little debate on the role of Government, Telcos and small start-ups on the current state of fibre optic provision to the much hyped "new Silicon Valley" area around Shoreditch and Old Street for local businesses, and how the benefits and opportunities that much improved communication links and infrastructure (ie.: proper and reliable fibre optic widely available) would improve the productivity output for those businesses.

    Sorry I couldn't make it but the LINX thing the night before wiped me out and I had to get back to Winchester. Heard great things about the meetup though so looking forward to attending the next one.

    Many thanks for organizing the event! I really enjoyed it, got to know many more people interested in VoIP, covered incredibly many topics and managed to resolve a couple issues.
    See you all in a month.

    Anything a Lync guy can learn here? :-) I'm very much partial to OpenSource. But would be interesting to see what the rest of the industry is doing in the VOIP Ucomms world.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
