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.

There are going to be many talks from people from Chuva:

  • I will be giving two talks. The first one will be an introductory take on Views module, and in the second one, I'll talk about the translation community and the best practices when translating Drupal to Brazilian Portuguese.
  • José San Martin will be giving a session on Drupal 7 new Database and File layers.
  • Tiago will talk about Varnish and Drupal performance.
  • Diego will talk about development with Features and Context

We're also organizing a Coding, Documenting and Translation sprint during the event, more info to come on that.

And obviously we will take some time off to see the natural beauties from Brazil, for those of you who will not attend, here is another sneak peak from where we will be Drupalling:
