GatorLUG Meeting Agenda for July 18, 2007
6:00 - 6:15 Announcements
Software Freedom Day, OSCON Requests? Local Linux Stuff
6:15 - 6:30 Application Spotlight | Moneydance | Clinton Collins
If you use Quicken to track your personal finances, then you probably know
that Intuit would like for you to upgrade at least once every three years
even if you don't need or want the "upgrade". It also will not run on Linux
and Intuit doesn't seem interested in pursuing the growing Linux market. When
Intuit turned off my ability to download transactions (a great time saver) to
encourage me to upgrade, I was motivated to look for another option. I've
found an alternative called Moneydance that meets my needs and runs great on
Windows, Linux or Macs since it's written in Java.

6:30-7:30 Presentation | Deploying Asterisk for a Call Center | Martin Smith,
Matt Collins, Clinton Collins
After extensive testing, the Bureau of Economic and Business Research moved
its 75 station Survey Research call center to a new phone system powered by
Asterisk. We will show how and why we did this deployment for our call
See this link for some of the testing data:
Asterisk created by Digium, is the industry's first open source PBX. Asterisk
is a complete open source PBX. It runs on Linux, BSD and MacOSX and provides
all of the features you would expect from a PBX and more. Asterisk handles
voice over IP in many protocols, and can interoperate with almost all
standards-based telephony equipment using relatively inexpensive hardware.
Providing voicemail services with Directory, Call Conferencing, Interactive
Voice Response and Call Queuing, Asterisk also has support for three-way
calling caller ID services, ADSI, SIP and H.323, as both client and gateway.
