Campus Party, São Paulo
Brazil’s place in the web world is undisputed! Despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of its population does not have access to the internet, Brazil beats all other countries in terms of hours spent online. And maybe that’s why Campus Party came to Brazil after a few turns in Spain.
The event happened in São Paulo on the week of February 11th and convened professionals from different areas (astronomy, robotics, open source software, gaming, simulation, computer modeling, music and blogs) to discuss technology, content and entertainment. Participants camped out at the site’s location, where alcoholic beverages and drugs were explicitly prohibited. There were over 360 lectures offered, workshops and debates over the course of one week.
