I'm a Software Engineer working with Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) at iFood with 3+ years of experience.
At Debian, I'm a mentor in a local community Debian Brasília and I contribute packaging for Python and Golang teams.
Creator of the Kubernetes Team and maintainer of Debian Cloud Image Finder inside Cloud Team.
As you could noted at DC19, Brazil is a big country, and because of this, it’s impossible to be organized inside a unique group.
Some states have created local groups to facilitate their local organization.
At this talk, we will present how our local communities are going on and what are the future prospects.
Bring and engage people to be part of a local community it’s a real challenge. During the last 3 years inside our local community, called Debian Brasília located in the capital of Brazil, we learned a lot about how to keep people contributing and participating in our regular activities. In this talk, we are going to present the dynamic of our meetings, how we are keeping the communication alive between active members, and methods to engage new people, trying to help them in achieving their goals in the context of the Debian Project or free software in general. We will be sharing the mistakes we made and what changes we made to work around them.
