Last week I attended LatinoWare 2011 in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, which also hosted, among a number of events, DrupalCamp Foz. There hasn't been a Drupalcamp in Brazil for some time already, so this was a really important event for the Drupal community in Brazil. The community is growing in Brazil and other Latin America countries. At the Drupalcamp, we had representatives from Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, and Mexico. We also had the presence of our dear Drupal creator, Dries Buytaert.

I attended COSSFEST 2009 one week ago. Calgary as it turns out has an active opensource community for its size and the current president of KDE lives there!! I was the only person there who is actively involved in the Drupal community and earning a living from Drupal. However may of the developers were using Drupal in one way or another so I felt at home.
In just over a week I will be presenting at the Calgary Open Source Systems Festival (COSSFEST) on how to create Web 2.0 websites using Drupal. COSSFEST is a two day event featuring multiple speaking tracks and workshops demonstrating the use of Open Source to lower costs, and increase the capabilities and competitiveness of your business. Beginning in 2006 as an effort by the Calgary Linux Users Group and was called the "Calgary LinuxFest 2006".
