Latinoware 2009

| Comments

Next Thursday, October 22nd begins the 6th edition of the Latin American Free Software Conference - Latinoware and we are going to be there =)

About 3900 people are already registered for the event and personally I expect a great opportunity to meet people, some of them I only know from IRC or mailing lists, maybe new partners for Qt Labs Americas in other countries of Latin America =) and also a chance  to learn new things.

Learn and teach a little! =) If you take a look in the conference’s program you will see that some colleages are going to speak there. Artur de Souza (MoRpHeuz) will present an updated version of his talk about Plasma Netbook (including a cool demonstration =). In Caio Marcelo’s’ and Eduardo Fleury’s talk, the attendants will see what are the new possibilities in graphical interfaces development with Qt (and for KDE). Another openBossa speaker is Kenneth Christiansen with a presentation about QtWebKit.

People interested in learn how to develop with Qt and KDE will have a great opportunity because there are 2 courses by the guys of Live Blue. In the last day (Saturday October,24th) Jesus Sanchez-Palencia and me are going to head a course on the new Qt 4.6 APIs .

Besides the mentioned ones, Ana Cecília (annieC) will talk about an usability study on FOSS.

So, if you are going to Foz do Iguaçú, see you there! =) And if you won’t go, stay tuned for the news.
