“The Developer’s Conference” is a 5 day event for all things software development, which opens its doors in São Paulo this week on Wednesday 10th. Simon will be there running an Open Source Track along with fellow OSI director Bruno Souza. The track runs on the Wednesday, with presentations and seminars from a range of speakers, covering topics from “decentralising the web” to “contributing to open source projects” and “A developer response to software patents”. If you’re attending TDC or are in São Paulo for any other reason, get along to the open source track!
During the first couple of weeks of July Simon will be in Brazil for a number of events.
If you’re in Porto Alegre you could hear him talk at FISL, where he’ll talk on Wednesday July 3rd on the topic of how open source turned businesses and governments around the world into users and promoters of free software. He’s also speaking on the Friday July 5th about the threat of software patents, (even to those in a country which doesn’t seem to allow them) and what steps can be taken to counter that threat.
