Chris Jones (of Oracle) has posted his trip report from this year's PHP Brasil conference he attended:
Last week's PHP Brasil '08 conference was held at the "UNIFIEO" University in Osasco, a region of Sao Paulo. [...] The conference was organized under the leadership of Er Galvao Abbott with community input, and in conjunction with a logistics team from "Tempo Real Eventos". The conference was very interesting and successful.
He mentions the training sessions, talks and the exhibition hall that was "arranged around a basket ball court with a life-size PHP ElePHPant dominating one end". Lots of Oracle elePHPants were given away and the social events were enjoyed, accomidations were nice and plenty of networking was going on throughout the days.
