Today the news comes straight from Porto Alegre!
At this moment, I’m at the 13th FISL (Free Software Internacional Forum). For those who doesn’t know, this is one of the most relevant events of the open source community in Latin America. The coolest things here is that it doesn’t matter which technology do you deal with, the idea is just gather people together.
This is the first time I’m here, so my friends told me that they have a tradition in FISL and they called it as “islands” (or “villages”). These islands are destinated spaces for the different development communities. So, in a quick walk here you can find islands of PHP, Linux, etc.
In Brazil, the scenario began to change after the BrazilJS’s conference in 2011.
This event was the start for regional groups to emerge. RioJS and PernambucoJS were firstly created, that soon encouraged the creation of SampaJS, BeagaJS, RSJS and so on.
Our mission with this project is only one: bring knowledge and help people.
This is just a brief welcome. We have a ton of ideas in our heads and people willing to make them reality. Do you want to come with us?
