Remembering Felipe Gaúcho


Our friend Felipe Gaúcho died of a heart attack this last Friday . Felipe was one of the founders of CEJUG, the Ceará JUG, and created the Premio Universitario Java. You probably know Felipe from his active blog where he covered many topics - his last post was just Thursday.

I last saw Felipe during JavaOne - full of enthusiasm as always - and we had exchanged email this Tuesday; we will all miss him sorely. Many other people also had the luck to work with him - see the notes from Hildeberto, PeterP, Claudio and Kevin.

My condolences to Felipe's family. If you knew Felipe, please consider leaving a comment in the CEJUG Notice.


sorry to hear that. he's a great man.

From Hildeberto: "The CEJUG Committee approved by unanimity and enthusiasm the change of the Felipe's Project name from Prêmio Universitário Java (PUJ) (or Java University Award) to Prêmio Universitário Felipe Gaúcho or Felipe Gaúcho University Award."
