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