Plone Evangelist, co-founder of Simples Consultoria, two time organizer of Plone Symposium South America (2009 and 2011), former board member and currently a happy Plone user.
Why am I Interested?
I promoted Plone in the Brazilian market for more than 10 years and during that time I gave talks, training classes, wrote code, translated documentation, organized events and delivered Plone solutions ranging from short-lived blogs to very successful news portals. Also, I served as a Foundation Board member for 3 years, from 2011 to 2014.
Nowadays I still use Plone on a daily basis, both for my current company (Wundertax GmbH) and for private projects. This experience gives me a distinct perspective about Plone and its place on the current technology landscape.
What I can add to the Plone Foundation
- An end user perspective about content management and technology choices.
- 22 years of IT marketing -- and evangelism.
- Willing to bring the Pyramid and Plone community even closer to each other.
- Experience in developing s local Plone community, where most of our members spoke only our own language.
- Knowledge about cultural aspects of selling Plone on different vertical markets -- from government to media corporations.
- An ability to communicate ideas to different audiences and bring people together to achieve common goals.
