CONISLI 2008 - Congresso Internacional do Software Livre 2008

In english, CONISLI means International Free Software Congress (free meaning freedom, because in portuguese we don't use the word free for something that have no cost).

The event was on the weekend of october 18th and 19th, 2008. It was great, nice talks, a lot of interested and interesting people. As Tom said in his blog: “The CONISLI 2008 (International Congress of Free Software) is an event of technical content and instructive, with a focus on software development, infrastructure and security, strengthening the Community of Free Software.

It happened at FIAP ( Faculdade de Informática e Administração Paulista) , and giving talks from Sun was me (Marcelo Arbore), Tom Mix Petreca and Maurício Leal. Maurício talked about MySQL database system, Tom introduced OpenSolaris, and I talked about Solaris Dtrace, Resource Manager and Zones.

Software Freedom Day 2008

"In a time when our lives are increasingly dependent on technologies, it is important we take the time to consider the impact of technology on our lives, and the importance of ensuring technology isn't used to limit us, but rather to take us further along a path of opportunity, innovation and freedom for all people."

"Software Freedom Day(SFD) is an event with hundreds of teams from all around the world running local events to help their communities understand Software Freedom."

There was more than 500 events around the globe and more than 50 just in Brazil!

Me and my coworker Tom Mix Petreca planned 2 SFD events. One for my University and one for his.

 His event took place at Faculdade de Engenharia Industrial (FEI), in the beautiful afternoon of september 20th, 2008.
