Simon Phipps has posted a neat picture of Sun's booth at FISL 8.0 (Porto Alegre, Brazil) where I just came back from last week.
As usual and once again, the conference has been terrific - Lots of attendees (5,363) and it is all about free and open source software. It was incredible (even after my second time there) to experience the level of interest from the attendees - Very nice folks and this conference keeps you busy for sure until dusk .
Also, for a "meaterian" like me , it was absolutely awesome to experience the intense BBQ cuisine from Brazil (churrasco)and this area.
I gave a presentation on particular technics on how to enable offline web applications (RIA) using Java DB - I will give a more elaborated talk at JavaOne 2007 where I'm co-presenting with Zimbra on their next-generation suite of collaborative web applications that can operate homogeneously online and offline (Zimbra Desktop), using Apache Derby.
Many thanks to Rafael Vanoni for hosting my talk and speaking Portuguese better than I do
Obrigado a Todos!
