Anyone can TALK about tech - but it takes skill to DEMO tech live in front of an audience.   Performing with elements of high tech (such as Asterisk and the latest unsupported features of Open Source Real Time Communications applications) using Conference WiFi in front of an audience of some of the best comms hackers in the World can be likened to descending the Cresta Run on a Skeleton Bobsleigh - it is risky and dangerous, but if you survive the experience the buzz that you get is just incredible.

Dangerous Demos are aimed to give presenters the chance to experience this rush - whilst providing an exciting, energising, electrifying, engaging and even educational series of lightning presentations to a live audience.  Each speaker has precisely THREE minutes to show off their technology, with prizes being awarded to the Most Entertaining, Most Popular (by audience vote - using a very novel and risky voting system), Most Ridiculously Risky (aka Crash and Burn) presentations and as ever the Swan Prize - for the most technically advanced demo (that does not outwardly appear to be dangerous).  In addition this year - as this *is* Astricon, Digium and Sangoma have generously donated two additional prizes - for Best Use of Asterisk and Best Use of FreePBX within a demo.  

  • Audience Vote - Voted for by the audience  - [Prize: Apple Airpod]
  • Most Entertaining - The demo that produced to greatest entertainment value  - [Prize: Google Pixel phone]
  • Swan Prize - The demo which is just technically brilliant   - [Prize: Apple iPad]
  • Best use of Asterisk - Additional prize for best use of Asterisk in demo  - [Prize: Arduino developer kit]
  • Best use of FreePBX Additional prize for best use of FreePBX in demo    - [Prize: Microsoft Surface Tablet]
  • Crash and Burn The demo that went wrong (in the best way)    - [Prize: Arduino developer kit]
