This months event brings us to Folkestone at The Quarterhouse. We have some exciting talks lined up for you this month, suitable for all audiences regardless of tech knowledge. Don't miss out!

Telephone Systems and Voice over IP

The speaker will talk about his experiences with a gradually evolving SOHO telephone system, starting with a single POTS (landline), through ISDN, to the current VoIP solution, and the eventual removal of the original telephones. The majority of the talk will concern the use of the open source Asterisk platform to provide numerous facilities (including one or two quite unusual ones) in a large, rambling house used also as an office for part of the time. This will include an introduction to VoIP for beginners. Costs and savings will also be considered. There will be time for questions and discussion.

Managing technical debt

With the talk primarily aimed at those in technical roles, I'll be providing a number of practical methods to use when managing technical debt. About half the talk will be things we can do as developers to quickly identify then reduce the impact of technical debt, and half will be around how to explain technical debt to non-technical stakeholders.
