8º Firebird Developers Day


(veja em português) - (index of all previous reports)

The 8th edition of the Firebird Developers Day was held in in the city of Piracicaba-SP-Brazil, at July, 23 2011, in the UNIMEP university campus, with the presence of 600 attendees.

The conference had 16 talks done by Carlos H. Cantu, Alexandre Benson Smith, Paulo Quicoli, Jederson Zuchi, Eduardo Jedliczka, Alexey Kovyazin, Michael Philippenko, Marcos Gomes, Kelver Merlotti, Wagner Ramos and Carlos Henrique Rodrigues. The grid of talks can be seen at the bottom of this page.

As always, attendees could buy products from sponsors with very special discounts!

This year attendees donated about USD 2,600 for the Firebird Foundation. This is an important sign that the community is aware of the importance of contributing with money to the Foundation, to assure a bright future for the Firebird Project.

I would like to thanks all the speakers, sponsors, attendees, UNIMEP, and all the other people that was involved in some way with the realization of this conference.

I hope to see you again in the next year, at the 9th FDD!
