[SR-Users] Newbie starting - looking for docs / tutorials

I'm just starting with Kamailio - I've been to a few presentations about it, 
at Fosdem and KamailioWorld, but never used it so far.

I'm pretty familiar with Asterisk, and I want to use them in combination.

My first use case is to handle SIP registrations (both as a client, registering 
to a remote SIP server, and as a server, accepting registrations from 
handsets) in Kamailio instead of Asterisk, and still be able to route calls 
to/from the registered accounts through the Asterisk dialplan.

I suspect this is a pretty common starting point for people who've used 
Asterisk and want to add Kamailio to the setup?

So far I've been unsuccessful finding any Howto or Tutorial explaining how to 
do this - I can't help feeling I must simply be looking in the wrong place or 
in the wrong way.

Searching for topics like "Asterisk Kamailio Getting Started" I find:


but with 12 chapters and 85 pages I'm not sure which bits are the essential 
parts to do what I need.

I've also found http://kb.asipto.com/asterisk:realtime:kamailio-4.0.x-
asterisk-11.3.0-astdb but this seems to focus on a database backend, which I 
guess I'll want to use in due course, but doesn't seem the simplest place to 
start just to learn how Asterisk & Kamailio work together?

So, please can someone suggest a beginner's guide to introducing Kamailio into 
an Asterisk setup, keeping things as simple as possible to start with, so I 
can learn about Kamailio one bit at a time (since there do seem to be a lot of 
bits to it) from a familiar environment of using it with Asterisk?

Thanks in advance,
