As we stated before, out of the 32 talks, I will select 5 to showcase in the USA InfoQ website. You can help out in the process by sharing the playlist and liking your favorites. I'll take that into consideration as well.
We actually did it: 31 Brazilian speakers, coming from all around the globe (yes, we had Brazilians living in Canada, the Netherlands, Germany also coming here), and they all delivered great talks in ENGLISH. Finally, a Tech Conference in Brazil that anyone on the planet can consume, enjoy and learn.
It was a long year, we did the "M.V.P." style, a spartan planning. Some people didn't believe in the concept. Many waited to see it actually happen to finally say something. We struggled to make it happen. But it was all worth it. InfoQ Brasil and all the companies that sent great speakers, and the community that helped share the message from the beginning, I sincerely salute and thank you a lot! It would not be possible without your help.
Against all odds, we pulled it off.
And I am committing myself to try and improve the 2nd edition, already confirmed for 2018, Sep 21-22. Follow our Facebook Page and our Twitter account. A simple share, retweet, really help a lot, please contribute!
Also, watch my opening keynote to understand more of the event rationale.
If you want to see the 2017 website, with the full program and all the supporting companies, I put it here.
2017 was the prototype. Help us improve the rough edges for 2018.
Keep an eye on the social networks, the Call for Papers will open probably around April 2018.
