The Caipirinha Sprint (named in honor of Brazilian culture, as it will receive international guests) is an effort by some developers to solve common problems of software or to work in the evolution of functionality or documentation.
The 2012 Caipirinha Sprint edition will be held at Interlegis, in Brasília - Brasil, just after the Plone Symposium South America 2012.
The main idea for this year is work on the plone.api and and extend the work initiated during the Belgian Beer Sprint.
Brasília is the federal capital of Brazil and the seat of government of the Federal District. The city is located in the Federal District, and is in the Central-West region of the country. Brasilia is the largest city in the world that did not exist at the beginning of the 20th century.
As the national capital, Brasília is the seat of all three branches of the Brazilian government. The city also hosts the headquarters of many Brazilian companies. Planning policies such as the location of residential buildings around expansive urban areas, as well as building the city around large avenues and dividing it into sectors, have sparked a debate and reflection on life in big cities in the 20th century. The city's design divides it into numbered blocks as well as sectors for specified activities, such as the Hotel Sector, the Banking Sector or the Embassy Sector. Brasília hosts 124 foreign embassies.
The city was planned and developed in 1956 with Lúcio Costa as the principal urban planner and Oscar Niemeyer as the principal architect. On April 22 of 1960, it formally became Brazil's national capital.
Brasília International Airport is the main airport in Brasília, connecting the capital to all major Brazilian cities and many international destinations. It is the third most important airport in Brazil, in terms of passengers and aircraft movements.
