Spreading the Joomla word in Brazil

There’s few countries that have embraced the power and promise of open source software as much a Brazil, so I’m more than excited that I’ve been invited to speak at CMS Brasil and Fórum Internacional de Software Livre 10 (FISL), along with my Joomla! colleague Anthony Ferrara.

CMS BrasilThe CMS Brasil conference (June 20, 2009) will be a convening of about 550 open source CMS enthusiasts, with strong focus on the Joomla!, Drupal, and WordPress communities.  While my Portuguese is only as good as my Spanish (not that great), you can check out the schedule as well as keep in touch with the event messaging on Twitter.

Fórum Internacional de Software LivreThe FISL is kicking off on June 24, 2009, in the hip Porto Alegre.  I’ll be speading the word about Joomla! and sharing insight into our growing community.  Additionally, I’ll be sharing some insight from research and future thoughts on the Joomla! community from my Open Source Matters seat.

With more than 3,700 registered attendees, I’m sure it’s going to be an awe inspiring site of open source at work.  You can follow the conference’s events on Twitter.  Of course, with the co-founder of Pirate Bay and Richard Stallman in attendance, you can expect some interesting discussions on the conference floor.

Looking forward to seeing our Brazilian (and worldwide) Joomla! friends at these great events.  Ping me if you’ll be there.
