Way the go Anyssa! Awesome to see you here and your journey with WordPress. Love it!
What a great talk. I am from Costa Rica, and met Anyssa in Sao Paulo last year. She and Allyson were amazing and to me, this WordCamp (Sao Paulo) was the best I attended in terms of its people. Brasilians are OUT OF THIS WORLD in terms of people. Always happy. I will be back this year.
I do have to stress what Tracy said about the commitment of making WordCamps happen outside the US here in Latin America. From a financial point of view we also get less money from Central compared to Camps in the US. I think that is a tad unfair considering how much people places like Sao Paulo or San Jose, Costa Rica, move.
Thank you for the interview. And Anyssa…. BOA SORTE!!! ABRAÇO!!!
