Intro to Asterisk

Topics:

Introduction to Asterisk - history and versioning
Telephony - short discussion on different telephony methods used by asterisk
Installation / Main configuration files for Asterisk
Dialplan and common dialplan configurations
Setting up a soft phone
Basic Troubleshooting

Summary
What to bring:
Laptop
IP phone if you have one, if not, no worries I think we have a few loaners.
Brain food! Snacks, etc.

Pre-reqs:
Basic understanding of linux and how to use VIM/VI command line editors (the class will be mostly looking at the command line, so if you are a little familiar it will be less painful)
Else:
My disclaimer: I have taken 2 asterisk courses (intro and advanced) last year around this time and thought teaching a course would be a great way to share some knowledge as well as refresh my own. This will be my first ever taught class, so should be pretty entertaining for all parties involved. I get talking and I talk quickly, so if you need to slow me down, please do. I need to run through some of the lessons, and will be presenting with a powerpoint and working on the server end. I hope to see you all there, seems like there may be 10~ or more people, I'm excited to teach you what I've learned. If you have any specific questions please feel free to ping me in IRC or use the contact button.

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.
