Over the last week end I had the chance to visit the Portuguese Blender Conference in Coimbra. It was my first time there and I had a great time meeting many great members of the Portuguese community.
The content presented covered many areas, such as video editing, traditional animation with Grease Pencil, one-man projects, medical simulation, advanced artistic techniques. It's great to see Blender being used in so many different ways.
A crowd of almost 200 Blender professionals, hobbyists and students was attending the event during both days: it was a pleasure to hang out with everyone.
From the conversations I had, it looks like the community in Portugal is much bigger than that, so I would like to invite all Portuguese Blender users to get connected to the Problender organisation and check out the forum. This way future events will be even bigger and more fun!
Thanks again for having me in Coimbra and until the next time!
On a separate note, another Blender Community event is coming up: Blender Day. If you are in Germany, don't miss it!
