In São Paulo from this weekend

November 26th, 2012

I’ll be flying to Sao Paulo this week to attend Jenkins meet-up (Saturday) and JavaOne Latin America (next Tuesday and onward).

The last time I visited Brazil was a few years ago, but thanks to Mauricio Leal, whom I tagged around with for a JUG tour around Brazil, it was really a blast. This time around I don’t have the benefit of the local guy to the degree I had before, but I’m really looking forward to it.

The major pre-travel issue was that the Brazilian government run out of the visa stickers. But I made it just in time (or more precisely I hopefully will be — I’ll be picking up my passport Wednesday and flying Thursday. Phew!)

The highlight of the trip will be the first-eve Jenkins meet up in São Paulo — I’ve been a big fan of local communities where there exists a language barrier. I’m from Japan, so I’ve seen it the first hand the value of local communities would bring to the table. The speaker/session line up is amazing, the event is free, and there’ll be a social at the end, so if you are in the area and has been interested in meeting with fellow Jenkins developers and users, please RSVP.

But if you can’t come in person, at least please consider joinining the Brazilian Portaguese mailing list of Jenkins users, which we are launching.

I don’t really have any plans on Sunday and Monday — any sight-seeing suggestions and/or interest of meeting up and chatting about stuff would be more than welcome. Leave the comment here, or see the right for my e-mail address.

My Upcoming Presentations

June 3rd, 2010

I will be presenting Hudson (with a focus on its Selenium support/integration) at the upcoming San Francisco Selenium Meetup event on Jun 22nd in San Francisco. There are several Selenium-related plugins in Hudson, but running Selenium tests on Hudson involves some initial setup cost. I’d discuss those, plus general-purpose features in Hudson that really work well with Selenium.

In the week after that, from 30th to July 3rd, I’ll be in Israel, thanks to JFrog. This is my first visit to Israel, so I’m really excited. If there are any Hudson users there who’d like to meet up, please let me know, as I’m always interested in seeing different deployments of Hudson and learn from those. Or if you are interested in having me do a short on-site work, there won’t be any travel cost, so this would be a good opportunity ;-)

Further down the road, I’ll be speaking in JavaOne 2010. Historically we have a good number of Hudson committers/users in JavaOne, so we’ve been doing some get-together. I hope we can do it again, so please stay tuned as the details of the conference develops over the summer.
