14º Firebird Developers Day


(veja em português) - (índice de todos os reports)

The 14th Firebird Developers Day was held in the city of Piracicaba — SP — Brazil, in July, 29 2017, at Espaço Beira Rio. The conference is organized by FireBase, and had the presence of 300 attendees coming from dozens of cities and different states of Brazil:

This year we had the special presence of Alexey Kovyazin (IBSurgeon). The Brazilian speakers were Alexandre Benson Smith, Jederson Zuchi, Paulo Quicoli, Luiz Paulo de O. Santos, Regys B. da Silveira, Kelver Merlotti, Paulo Monteiro and Carlos Henrique Cantu.

The sessions grid (see below) was composed by several inedit subjects.

In the final session, there was a raffle for the attendees, with dozens of items (licenses, courses, tools, etc) offered by our sponsors and supporters. The attendees also could buy products from our sponsors/supporters with very special discounts.

During the subscription process, the attendees were able to donate money to the Firebird Foundation. The amount collected this year was R$ 4.600. The list of donors is available at http://www.firebirddevelopersday.com.br/fdd/14fdd_donors.html. The amount was sent to the Firebird Foundation, to be added to the crowdfunding campaign destinated to translate the Firebird Developers Guide, from Russian to English.

I want to thanks everyone for the presence, not forgetting the speakers, staff, sponsors and supporters. I hope to see all of you again in 2.018!
