A tradition in the Tiki community, a TikiFest is a meeting between Tiki community members (that usually only meet online). This is an opportunity to socialize, code and discuss about wiki technology and culture, etc.


End of June, probably from 2011-06-21 to 2011-06-27, to be able to participate on FISL (a big free software event in Porto Alegre, Brazil). Next FISL will be from 2011-06-29 to 2011-07-02. We would apply to have a talk about Tiki and a booth at the event.


We have discussed two different options. We can do one or both.

  • Host the event in a big city (São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro or Porto Alegre). Better for networking with Brazilian free software enthusiasts and better internet connection meaning that will be easier to host conferences with others that can't came to the TikiFest but want to participate.
  • Go to a smaller city in the coast near a beautiful beach. Better to enjoy the best of Brazil (big cities are almost the same everywhere in the world) and to focus on specific Tiki tasks with the attendants of the event.

More on the different location options:

  • Rio de Janeiro (map):
    • Big city, probably Brazilian second economic center, and beautiful at the same time (in the coast) smile
    • Rodrigo is living in Rio now so it is easier for him to organize a TikiFest there (or in São Paulo)

  • Porto Alegre (map):
    • FISL happens in Porto Alegre


The plan is to rent a TikiHouse.
