I want to put some documentation about registering a GSM gateway in the documentation, but I have no idea how to start a new article.

Please install SyntaxHighlight wiki extension. This will make source code look much better. --Bender 13:30, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Free SWITCH Training Bootcamp

The FreeSWITCH Training Bootcamp is a full 3-day intensive training providing in-depth coverage of FreeSWITCH installation, configuration, maintenance and programming. You will learn, step by step, how to configure, manage and program the FreeSWITCH telephony soft switch in great detail. Tips and tricks in debugging and optimizing FreeSWITCH are also taught.

Scheduled training courses will take place around the world.


Oct 13th - 15th, 2010 New York, NY

These courses are official FreeSWITCH training courses. This course will be taught by Darren Schreiber, one of the co-authors of the new FreeSWITCH book.

Who should attend:

   * VoIP providers seeking “Open Source” platforms to enhance their businesses
   * Anyone seeking proficiency in FreeSWITCH
   * Network Consultants and VARs who need a jump start in the technology
   * Developers who want to use FreeSWITCH to create new telephony applications and appliances

Topics that will be covered in this course:

   * Install FreeSWITCH on a Linux Machine
   * Understanding configuration files and the default configuration
   * Call authentication and routing basics
   * Integration modules (mod_skypiax, mod_dingaling for Skype/GTalk/XMPP integration)
   * Understanding presence
   * Load balancing and high availability
   * FreeSWITCH Internals
   * How to debug and troubleshoot FreeSWITCH
   * Building Custom C Modules
   * Advanced Modules

This training course will be a mixture of lectures and hands-on lab exercises. By the end of the third day students will have completed a number of labs that allow for the successful installation and configuration of a working soft switch that will process calls from within the classroom and from outside numbers and make various routing decisions. If time allows and interest is present, students will also compile a basic custom C module that introduces new dialplan and API commands into the FreeSWITCH system.

As this is our first official training, we're happy to tailor the training to your specific interests where possible. Let us know if you want to learn something you don't see on the list.
