I had the good fortune to visit Brazil recently and meet many nice people scattered out across a great country. Along the way I managed to demonstrate some of the new features coming in NetBeans IDE 6.1.
The ninth annual FISL conference was
April 17-19 in the city of Porto
Alegre, which is the capital city of the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul.
I was fortunate enough to have my memory leaks talk
selected, so I asked my
co-worker Bruno Souza if
he could set up some user group meetings and/or
university visits in the days immediately before the conference.
This is sort of like asking if it would be possible to get another slice
of grilled meat at a churrascaria ;
his answer was: "Of course!" :-)
In Brazil, everyone who knows Java knows Bruno - and even people who don't
know Java know Bruno, including the president ,
as shown in this photo .
So Bruno said to me: "How busy do you want to be?" I responded: "Very." I'll
think twice before I say that to him again.... :-D
I did presentations for the following Java users groups:
Java Noroeste ,
Java do Sert
