VON Canada - Just a Week Away

Just as the Spring VON buzz has finally subsided, it's time for another VON! For once, I don't have to travel - VON Canada is right here in Toronto.

The show runs Monday - Wednesday, April 3 - 5, and looks to build on the momentum from Spring VON, but with a local flavor. I'll be moderating and speaking on a few of the sessions, so I won't be hard to find.

One interesting twist to the show involves the Asterisk community. Open source has been on the VON agenda for some time, and at VON Canada, the Toronto Asterisk User Group (TAUG) will be holding their monthly meeting at the show venue. The agenda for the meeting is still evolving, but it's open to anyone attending the show. So if you're interested in open source, this will be a great way to connect with the community. I recently learned that TAUG is the largest AUG in the world, so I suspect there will be a healthy turnout. Hope to see you there!

jon,
what's going on with VON Canada? first, niklas zennstrom pulls out of his keynote (i imagine for legal reason after being sued under RICO); then i see that jeff pulver isn't giving the opening keynote. meanwhile, alec saunders also appears to be speaking on three separate occasions.
