Re: CloudStack Collab in Brazil

Hey Marco,
Yes, they run a very successful conference every year. I have just got back
from Montreal, and I talked with people there regarding the conference.

Now, for all CloudStackers (users and devs); I will repeat what I said in
Montreal. The TDC conference will happen with or without us. Therefore, we
only need to decide if we will join them in their Cloud tracks. We did not
hear much feedback here, but I will try again.

If you are part of the CloudStack community (as a contributor, committer,
user, operator, and so on), please do provide your feedback. Would you like
to see a CloudStack Collab Conference in Florianopolis, Brazil, 2019? I am
only asking you guys, what you think. I do understand the logistics
problems for some folks to attend a conference this far.

Now, about the city; the island has an airport (airport code = FLN).
However, most flights to FLN will have a connection either on GRU (Sao
Paulo airport) or GIG (Rio de Janeiro airport); KLM, AA, Delta, AirFrance,
Tap, and others have flights to FLN. I have also found some useful links in
English that can be used by your guys to check the city. In this link [1]
you can information not only about the city, but the State as well; there
are pages in different languages such as English, Spanish, and German (to
change the language there is a button in the top-right corner). On these
other links [2-3], you can find a guide (English only) of the city; it
contains a brief overview and some details about Museums, Beaches, events
and so on.

I would also be happy to answer any other question that you might have.
