[Note: Please pass this note along to European developers who you may  
know are not actively scanning the -dev list!]

The European Asterisk development community may be the largest number  
of active participants on a per-continent basis, depending on how the  
measurement is done.  There have been a few meetings of Asterisk  
developers in Europe over the last ten years, but recently there has  
not been a planned get-together of developers like has been arranged  
at AstriDevCon (following Astricon)  in North America.   It is too  
infrequent that Digium engineering members get to see some of those  
participants, and also we'd like to encourage the development  
community by getting everyone together once in a while to meet and  
talk in a way that is more personable than email, IRC, or by voice  
alone.  Therefore, I'd like to announce that there will be an Asterisk  
Developer European Meet-Up held in Rostock, Germany on May 2nd and 3rd  
for the purposes of meeting old friends, introductions to new coders,  
and getting some good work done towards furthering Asterisk open- 
source development.

The meeting will be held immediately before AMOOCON on the Saturday/ 
Sunday before the conference.  We've been given a room and Internet  
connectivity for the purposes of having the meet-up, and I suspect  
there are some good restaurants and bars in the area which might be  
suitable for post-coding discussion as well.

There is a small group who I've already been in touch with on this,  
and in order to get a good quorum of developers we'd like to open up  
the session to a wider audience of development participants.  This is  
really for people who write core Asterisk code - the subjects covered  
will not be applicable to "user" portions of Asterisk, so please  
respond only if you're actively writing code within the Asterisk  
project.  If you'd like more general topics, the AMOOCON conference  
will cover a broader range of VoIP areas.  You are encouraged to sign  
up for the AMOOCON (http://www.amoocon.de/) event which is happening  
right after the meet-up and is a paid event, but keep in mind the  
Asterisk Developer European Meet-Up is free to participants.  There  
will be a good handful of attendees from Digium - Kevin, Russell, and  
perhaps other as-yet-undecided engineering staff, but it's your  
participation that is what is going to make the meeting productive -  
we look forward to hearing from you!

Please send your interest to me and I'll add you to the list of
