Talk at FISL

7200+ participants, 500+ speakers, 600+ hours of activities. These are the numbers of the last FISL, the biggest free software related event in Brazil. This year the key speakers were Tobias Andersson (one of the founders of The Pirate Bay), Richard Stallman (founder of the free software movement), Jon “Maddog” Hall (executive director of Linux International) and some others. In my talk I spoke about physics engines for games (you can watch it here), topic that I have a special interest and is what I’ve been working at in the last months.
