    Portugal has a fantastic weather in the summer, bring your bathing suits if you think you will have time to go to the beaches of Cascais.

    Sunday 25th September


    We're thinking about something that allows people to do some sight-seeing and still have the ability to talk a bit more.


    How to get there


    Once you are in Lisbon Airport you can take a taxi to your hotel in Cascais depending of the time you arrive the taxi could cost between 35€ and 45€ - be careful with taxi drivers.
    If you prefer you can take the Aerobus from the Airport to Cais do Sodré Station (last stop) and then take the train to Cascais (also last stop), than you can walk to your hotel if it is close to the station or take a taxi – this will cost around 5€ (without taxi).

    Accommodation Ideas

    There is a list of a few hotels in Cascais and Estoril that we suggest.
    All hotels at these dates are almost full so you better book it as soon as possible, we suggest booking.com

    Pedro,

    you copied the wrong link for Hotel da Vila. If you select it you get Estoril Hotel website .....

    Here it is the right link http://www.hoteldavila.com/

    Bye

    Hi Folks,

    Last year Pentaho Community Gathering at Barcelona was really good.
    Unfortunately this year I will not be able to travel from Brazil to go to Portugal, I wish I could but I will stay in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
    But what about doing next year the Pentaho Community Gathering in Brazil?

    I prepare a list of things that can help you guys decide about Brazil.

    To see this list please visit the link below:

    Best Regards and please show us some videos and pics about the Portugal Event.

    I think the biggest issue is exactly the same issue that stopped you from coming to Portugal this here - cost. Most of the attendees are from Europe and a transatlantic flight might be a show stopper for most of us

    Err, how do you come up with the figure that Brazil has 900 pentaho developers? if that is the case then you've got more than enough to organise your own gathering!!!! (I'd come, but probably get shot by the missus for going so far!)

    I replied to your blog - I'll repost here too:

    I think Brazil would be a great idea but it's not up to me. These events are completely organized by the community, for the community and I recommend that we have a South American one if there is enough people interested to make it happen.

    I hope we can get to the point where there is a meetup on every continent every year - well maybe not antartica. Let make it happen!

    Doug
