Why unplugged? Well, just like a few other guys on this event (I have counted six on the same situation), I have no notebook, no iPhone, and I was not connected to the Web the four days I get there.
But to be honest, I feel good at the end. Why? Well, I’m a speaker too, and I will never be caught accessing the Web when a presentation is taking place. So, looking this way it was good. I give these fantastic guys my FULL attention.
Laid down: Gilberto Mautner.
Anyway, this event was really really awesome! It will be a mark on Latin America’s Rails Community. Not only Brazil, but other neighborhood countries where present on the audience.
About the 1st day, there were two very short and special moments:
At the beginning when Gregg Pollack and Jason Seifer from RailsEnvy and EnvyCasts bring us a new video about the event. Very Funny ! Thanks to Carlos Brando.
And at the end, another good surprise at the Birds of a Feather session. The name: Elomar França a 17 years old guy from Rio Grande do Norte state, talking about how to create a studying group, on the same style of The infamous "identity 2.0" presentation from OSCON 2005.
Good work Elomar !
Ah! And he speaks in Portuguese twice as fast as Dr. Nic does in English !
