linuxdev-br: a Linux international conference in Brazil

 

On August 25th and 26th, the second edition of the Linux Developer Conference Brazil took place in the city of Campinas (Sao Paulo state) in Brazil. The first edition, in 2017, attracted 100 attendees with presentations from 8 speakers. This year the conference has grown bigger with 200 attendees and more than 30 talks in the schedule plus panel and lightning talks while at the same time doing the first step to become international. The first international speaker showed up and half of the content of the conference was delivered in English.


Be international is one of the main goals of the linuxdev-br, it wants to attract the Linux community from all over the world to integrate with the Brazilian community to share their experiences about many different subjects with the goal to promote more engagement from the Brazilian community to the Open Source world. In this second year of the event, Jon ‘maddog’ Hall, Ezequiel Garcia, Alvaro Soliverez and Erick Cafferata were the first internacional speakers of the history of the conference.

The technical content was excellent, many of the talks were given by Brazilian developers internationally respected by the Open Source community, it included Eduardo Habkost talking about Constructing a virtual CPU from the ground up, Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo bring up whant is latest on perf, Breno Leitão on Implementing Transactional Memory in Kernel space Ricardo Salveti on Securing Software Updates for IoT devices with TUF and Uptane. Everything was live streamed and the videos are already available at the linuxdev-br’s YouTube channel.

On a different front linuxdev-br succeeded in captivating several national and international companies who were there to integrate with the community and to learn more about the Open Source world, Some of them even sponsored the event: these companies Collabora, IBM, Vulcanet, ProFUSION, Toradex, 4Linux and Embedded Labworks.

Integrate newcomers to the Open Source community is also part of the mission of the conference. At the first edition Rodrigo Siqueira was still trying to understand how to start contributing to the Kernel but this year he was one of the speakers and talked about his current work with GPU and Display kernel drivers, and how experienced developers he met at the previous edition helped guiding him to be the kernel developer he is today.

The expectation for a sounder event next year is already big. The hosting city for 2019 will soon be announced, and the conference will continue further into its journey to contribute with a stronger FOSS community in Brazil and worldwide.

Thank you for attending linuxdev-br 2018!

We are very happy for everything that happened during the second edition of linuxdev-br in Campinas. We were 200 people attending talks, chatting in coffee-breaks and enjoying the happy hour on Saturday evening. We were a community. We are a community!

Now we will take a break and then start the plans for an even better conference next year, but before that we want to thank you for being there and participating. You are the reason we worked very hard to prepare every detail of the event. We know many things could have been better, but we are more than happy for what we achieve in just one year (first edition was 9 months ago). So thank you again!
