August 2020 saw the first ever ClueCon Deconstructed – a virtual version of ClueCon that allowed for anybody from any corner of the world to participate. This 3-day-long event was packed with workshops, a handpicked selection of awesome speakers, an online version of the Coder Games, and some virtual networking events. You can check out many of the events ClueCon offered this year on the FreeSWITCH YouTube channel.
This year, for the first time ever, we will be hosting a hybrid version of the conference both in Chicago at the beautiful InterContinental Hotel AND online! Click here to learn more about how we’re going to make it happen.

What is ClueCon?
ClueCon is a conference for developers by developers: an annual technology conference held every summer hosted by the team behind the FreeSWITCH open source project. Our primary focus is to gather various open source projects to discuss Voice over IP, open source software and hardware, Telecommunications, WebRTC, and IoT. We sit at the intersection of communication and technology and we love all things technical. Open source projects that have been represented over many years include FreeSWITCH, Kamailio, Asterisk, OpenSIPS, FusionPBX, Janus, HOMER, and many more!
How did ClueCon start?
ClueCon was founded over a decade ago in 2005 by an aspiring team of Asterisk software developers who wanted to push the envelope, and set out to 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. By the second year, that same team of developers, inspired by the first ClueCon, created a brand new open source communication application known today as FreeSWITCH. Every year the core members of the FreeSWITCH team still produce and oversee the conference with the original goal in mind: to blend a diverse collection of open source projects, speakers, and technology presentations that continue to inspire the way forward.
What Can I expect at ClueCon?
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. We begin the week with the Coder Games, devoted to coding and building technology. The following three days are packed with presentations by technology leaders from around the world covering all aspects of WebRTC, IoT, and Telephony. The fifth day, after the conference has ended, has training sessions available for purchase, covering popular technology products. The motto of ClueCon is “a conference for developers by developers.” We take that to heart, making sure we have a comfortable setting and lots of opportunities for networking and sharing ideas. ClueCon is like no other conference, so come join us this year and become part of the ClueCon family!
