This year we hope to hold two Squeakfest conferences, one in Brasil and another in the United States. While US details are still pending, we're very pleased to announce Squeakfest Brasil!
WHEN: July 24th and 25th, 2009
WHERE: Porto Alegre, Brasil
WHO: Hosted by UFRGS and Pensamento Digital
WHAT: a teacher-oriented, hands-on conference, showcasing Squeak Etoys use throughout Brasil and the rest of South & Central America
LANGUAGES: Portuguese and Spanish, with English translators
We've timed our conference so you may also attend the 9th World Conference on Computers in Education (WCCE):
WHEN: July 27th to July 31st, 2009
WHERE: Bento Gonçalves, Brasil
Transportation from Porto Alegre will be arranged as part of WCCE registration.
Several from Squeakland and Viewpoints will be presenting at both conferences. We encourage others from our community to consider presenting and to help us spread the word to colleagues and friends.
We'll be sending a "call for presentations" in March and will also be launching the conference website at that time.
