Joomla Community Magazine: When and where is JDBR 18 happening?
Kazuo: Joomla Day Brazil 2018 will happen from August 10 to 12 in Guarulhos, São Paulo.
JCM: Why Guarulhos?
Kazuo: Because it is a central city, close to Guarulhos International Airport, the largest in Brazil, there are highways that link to São Paulo and several other cities around and because it is a city that supports new technologies.
JCM: Where is the venue of Joomla Day Brasil 2018?
Kazuo: It will be held at Eniac College, an institution which encourages the area of technology and information. With this, the event will have rooms prepared to receive workshops and a large auditorium to accommodate all the joomlers.
JCM: What can we expect from the event this year?
Kazuo: After a few years without a JoomlaDay in Brazil, we hope to have a great event again, offering relevant talks for the Joomla community and the new ones that are coming.
JCM: Is there still room for anyone to give a lecture?
Kazuo: We have already selected all presentations. However, we are open to receiving new requests in case of any last minute withdrawal.
JCM: Does the organization need volunteers to help with the event?
Kazuo: We are always open to community volunteers. Send us a message to us by introducing yourself and showing your interest.
JCM: Any surprises for the participants?
Kazuo: Our lecture grid will offer, besides lectures related to Joomla, talks on ergonomics in work environments, accounting (opening a business in Brazil), plus a wonderful and useful surprise gift.
JCM: Will the Joomla Administrator Exam be offered?
Kazuo: Our intention is to offer the qualification, but we are still awaiting feedback from the team responsible for this area within the Joomla Project.
JCM: Would you like to add something else?
Kazuo: Yes! Although we have little support from the international community and Joomla companies for the event, we are very proud to be making Joomla Day Brazil a reality, even though we have to pay for a lot of the expenses on our own.
