There is a conference about Open Source, Web development and Databases at
the end of June in Sofia, Bulgaria. You can see for more info.

I will make a lecture about Firebird and now I make my presentation and
develop the information to present. Almost all of lecture I will present
Firebird current version, to make it more popular here in Bulgaria. I also
plan to include information about FB 2 at the end of lecture – new things,

Helen’s talk in Australia

From Malcon Groves blog (Borland): ADUG Symposium in Melbourne and Adelaide

The Australian Delphi Users Group have been holding yearly Symposia since 1999 (I remember as I had to catch an early flight back from the first one to get married the next day), and the lineup just gets better every year. This year it’ll be in Melbourne and Adelaide, and the sessions include:

* How to implement Plug-ins in .NET – Glenn Stephens
* Sweet-talking Firebird with Delphi – Helen Borrie
* Component Development in Delphi/VCL – Glenn Crouch
* Delphi.Net on Linux using Mono – Emlyn ORegan

I’ll be there talking about Devco and the future of Delphi, but to be honest I’m also excited just to sit in the audience for the day and listen to some really smart developers. Also, anyone who is doing anything with Interbase or Firebird needs to attend just to listen to Helen, she literally wrote the book on Firebird.

FDD will have 3 international speakers

The 3rd Firebird Developers Day Brazilian conference will count with the presence of Holger Klemt (IBExpert), Alexey Kovyazin (IBSurgeon/IBDeveloper magazine) and Ann Harrison (IBPhoenix) as international speakers (along with many Brazilian speakers).

FDD can be a great oportunity for South American people to have contact with great names of the Firebird community, specially if they don’t want to spent a lot of money going to the International Conference (in Prague/Czech Republic).

The conference will take place in Piracicaba-SP, at 29 July (whole day).

FB Japanese user group

Seems like it may be related to the FB Japanese user group. Sometimes, a few people from it post in the lists.

Here is the English version of that page and they had 2 presentations at Open source conference 2006 Tokyo : one is “Why to choose Firebird” the other is “How to build/debug Firebird”. [Ed:thanks for the link Cludio V.]
