To start the new year off on right foot, we will be hosting tomorrow the first Brazilian event of 2012 – DrupalDay Campinas.
Even though the event has been announced just three weeks ago, more than 160 people signed up.
Next week, from October 19th to 21st, we will be hosting the DrupalCamp Foz, in Foz do Iguaçu, near the world-famous Iguaçu falls.
Chuva is proud to be sponsoring this event and having people both in the organizing team and presenting talks at the Camp.
The event will take place alongside LatinoWare, one of the biggest open source events in Latin America, with more than 3.500 attendees confirmed so far. At DrupalCamp Foz, both Dries Buytaert and Ramus Lerdorf have confirmed their presence.
The event venue will be none other than the Itaipu Dam, the largest operating hydroelectric power station in the world(1) and considered one of the seven modern wonders of the world.
