Last week Espen already reported that a group of trolls were attending the Bossa’10 Conference in Manaus. It was a great conference with lots of great people attending and interesting presentations.
What is especially good about this conference is that the focus is on networking. It is always good when you get to meet people you have only been talking to and working with on-line (A shout out to Bruno Abinader, who has been working with me on itemviews-ng; it was great to finally meet you in real life!).

Even though it is great to meet new people and hang out by the pool (don’t tell my boss), I was really in Manaus to present my ideas for The Future Of Qt Widgets. I talked about the direction in which the Qt widgets are being developed. It’s all about making life easy for both designers and programmers, using the Qt Declarative UI technology.

Having Fun

The conference is over, but I am not ready to leave Brazil just yet. I will be spending the week in Recife with the guys at INdT. It is a blast working with them; they’re a smart bunch of developers and great fun to be around! And then there’s the beach… It’s tough being a Troll in Brazil, I tell you! 😉 Did I mention we’re hiring?

Hey… it’s good to hear that you had a good time here!! Be certain that there’re many Qt fans inside Brazil. 🙂

@tezine, Thanks, it’s mutual; we are many Brazil fans in QDF! 😉

Hey Marius!
I’m happy you enjoyed my hometown 🙂 It’s truly awesome to meet the Qt guys for real 😀 We’ll keep in touch about the amazing stuff being developed on the widgets-ng project. Best regards and enjoy your stay in Recife!

Nice to hear again about widgets-ng (I remember your talk on Munich Dev Days). The last commits on gitorious are quite old, I hope it’s only an outdated public snapshot we see there.
