What is ClueCon?
ClueCon is a conference for developers by developers: an annual technology conference hosted by the team behind the FreeSWITCH open source project. ClueCon gathers together various open source projects to discuss Voice over IP, open source software and hardware, Telecommunications, WebRTC, and IoT. The 2023 conference is taking place August 14th-17th.
ClueCon offers something for everyone, from a software developer playing with new ideas to the CEO of a technology company looking to take advantage of real-time communication. It’s a comfortable setting for developers of all kinds with lots of opportunities for networking and sharing ideas. ClueCon is like no other conference, so if you’d like to see interactive demos, creative problem solving, predictions about the industry, cool tech passion projects, or you’d like to learn more about open source platforms and how to use them, we hope you'll consider supporting us by attending or sponsoring!
ClueCon isn’t just educational though – we know how to have fun too! The evening events like the Gigabit Reception are a great way to meet fellow developers and chat with leaders in the world of open source telecom. Enjoy drinks, board games, hors d’oeuvres, video games, the popular underground guitar jam session and the highly anticipated ClueCon Karaoke. Every night of the conference offers festive networking opportunities, and plenty of chances to explore Chicago!
At the first ClueCon in 2005, an aspiring team of Asterisk software developers wanted to push the envelope and gather all of the open source projects into one place. They shared their wisdom and made open source communication a disruptive force in the industry. Inspired by the first ClueCon, that same group of developers created a brand new open source communication application known today as FreeSWITCH. Who knows what big idea is just around the corner?
