From July 6 to 10 happened The Developers Conference 2011 down here in São Paulo. The other editions were really good and, better, this one topped all of them. It was a really fun and productive event. I had the chance to meet friends and to get to know new people. If you were not there, #protip for you: BE THERE NEXT YEAR. Really.
Before talking more about the conference, I have to thank Globalcode (in special Vinicius and Yara). They did a great job =)
In a personal level, this conference was special to me: I made two ‘speaking’ participations. In one of them I talked about Scala, an introductory talk (you can find the sample code used in the talk in my github). The other one was a panel consisting of people from different languages on the jvm – lots of fun =)
In the event, I had one personal fail moment, that should remain as a tip for everyone out there. In a given moment, when talking to someone, I was asked for my business card… and didn’t have any on me. So the obvious tip: always have business cards with you. Always.
Now, if you follow my posts about events you may have noticed that this one is a little different. It contains no pictures. This is due to a second fail, that happened on this last Monday. I lost (or it got stolen…) my mobile. And with it, all the pictures from the entire event. Sorry =(
