Project News
August 21, 2015
Brazil has the largest Firebird user community in the world, and even the fact that we are suffering with a crisis maybe never seen before (forcing companies to cut costs or even to close its doors) did not diminish the brilliance of the event.

On August 8, people from 15 different states of Brazil participated in the 12th edition of the Firebird Developers Day (FDD). This year, the conference had Dmitry Yemanov (chief of the Firebird development team) and Alexey Kovyazin (IBSurgeon) as international speakers, as well the Brazilians Marcelo Daibert, Alexandre Benson Smith, Nilson Brasil and Carlos H. Cantu.

The FDD is an annual conference organized by FireBase, which brings developers an unique opportunity to catch up on issues related to Firebird, and exchange experiences with other users of this fantastic  RDBMS.

In addition, participants could also buy Firebird-related products with super special discounts. This year's conference was sponsored by IBSurgeon, FastReports, IBObjects, Embarcadero and supported by Woll2Woll, DevArt and Steema.

The report with all the information and many pictures can be seen here. During the registration process, people could donate money to the Firebird Foundation, summing up R$ 4.590.

On August 7, a selected group of people participated in a special MasterClass about Performance Optimization, done by Dmitry Yemanov and Alexey Kovyazin.
