I have been to many conferences in Brazil, but few have the line-up of speakers that the IV ENSOL conference will have this coming May 6-9 in João Pessoa, the capital of Paraíba. With three tracks, a discussion area and a vendor area it promises to be an action-packed event. There will also be sub-conferences, such as the I PHP-NE - Northeast Meeting of PHP, held partially in honor of Lerdof Rasmus, the creator of PHP, attending the event.


João Pessoa is a beautiful seaside city, and as the most eastern city in the Americas, it is literally where the sun rises first, and for the three days of this conference is figuratively where Free Software rises first in the Americas. Being close to the equator, it is about ninety degrees F in the daytime, and about 80 degrees F at night.


For all of you who are suffering through what the Brazilians call "winter", this is a good opportunity to attend a conference and catch a little warm weather once again.

Carpe Diem!
