A different week

Almost two years that I and Felipe Fialho organize the Meetup CSS; it was also around this time that I got courage and sent my first talk proposal.

Luckily, the proposal was accepted and my first talk was in the same week of the first edition of CSS meetup. Since this week, I started to have more interest in the comunity and conferences; I also try to go to every meetup and conference that I can, as a listener or speaker, and not only in São Paulo but in other states too.

After some time, I could list some things as:

  • Wake up early in a saturday and stay all day long in a conference.
  • Spend money in tickets and flights/fuel/hotel (for conferences in other states).
  • Organize a for free meetup and some times need to spend money on it.

And yet, I see much more positive points.

A front-end and UX week

Talking about conferences, let’s go to it: if you like or want to start to go in one, the last week of june will be a diferent week from the others. In a same week will happen Front UX, Meetup CSS, Code in the Dark and Front in Sampa.

Saturday - 25/06

  • Sampa JS
  • The only conference focused only on JavaScript in São Paulo city. It was the first event that I went and certainly one of the best cost-benefit ratio talking about conferences.

As far I know, maybe we will have something here! :)
