Software Freedom Day Report!

Hi everybody,

I know I'm late. I should have written this post last week, but I was quite occupied and forgot about sitting and writing the blog post.

The SFD event on Rio de Janeiro was fine! We had an attendance of 36 people and many of them were excited about what the OpenSource could give them.

About 10 o'clock of the morning we started the event speaking about the Software Freedom Day, Open Source and Sun intentions on this world! Next, we had a really great talk given by Magno Cavalcante, RioJUG's Leader and Sun Java Champion, about the Web 2.0 and people's value, including a lot of important concepts about software freedom, market and development.

After the lunch, we've kept talking about open source, showing great features of OpenSolaris 2008.05, VirtualBox and NetBeans. We explained the Sun Open Source University Meetup initiative to the students and invited them to join it! In the end, we had an OpenSolaris installation inside VirtualBox and we raffled give-aways!

Lots were said about the importance of software freedom! And how much the great companies support it, specially Sun!

That's it!
I will be probably posting something more technical here, like the SFD demo about NetBeans+AJAX that I have done.

Cheers!
Jonas

Software Freedom Day

Hey all,

Next Saturday we will have a great event to attend: The Software Freedom Day!

It will take place here at Rio de Janeiro on the Nova América Shopping Center at Estácio de Sá University Campus. We plan to have a lot of fun talking about FOSS and its importance to industry and society! We will have demonstrations, cool talks and install fest, showing great work done by the community!

Sun support FOSS and SFD! So, I will be there with Pedro Reis, another CA from Rio, shaking things at our event!

Go there to get some cool ideas(and gifts!)

;)
