Intro to Asterisk


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

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

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)
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.
