Plone Evangelist, co-founder of Simples Consultoria, two time organizer of Plone Symposium South America (2009 and 2011), current board member and 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 4 terms - from 2011 to 2014 and 2019.
Nowadays I still use Plone on a daily basis, both for my current company and for personal 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.
- 23 years of IT marketing -- and evangelism.
- Willing to bring the Pyramid and Plone community even closer to each other.
- Experience in developing a local Plone community, where most members spoke only Portuguese.
- 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.
