Now, this one was really a surprise to me. Didn’t know there was a group of Julians in Lisbon big enough to help host such event. I’ll certainly try to go (live only 300 km from there).

Lisbon is an hot city. And I mean temperature too (in July).

Congratulations for the choice of location! Lisbon has amazing culture, history, people, gastronomy, and natural beauty – with a booming startup ecosystem and (relatively) affordable accommodation. (And thanks for the fantastic reason to go back to one of my favourite countries in the world :portugal::sunglasses:)

Fantastic! Being plane-averse as I am, this is just perfect for me…

Fantastic choice for JuliaCon 2020. I really hope to be there.

I’m so happy! I’m Portuguese, from Coimbra (200 km from Lisbon), but I barely know any other Portuguese person using Julia!
For this one, I shall take holidays at the time and I shall go!

Julia is a great programming language and Lisbon is fantastic! I am happy and I will certainly come (Düsseldorf, Germany) :star_struck:

I was in Lisbon in late July 2010. 22C one evening; 42 C the next one. A beautiful city.

OK that’s somewhat doable with a motorbike in two days from Germany :wink:

I vacationed in Lisbon with family this summer, and all I can say is “OMG! What a fantastic city!” Beautiful, historic, friendly, and a gastronomic paradise. Nice choice, JuliaCon!

Oh wow. Now I have no excuse not to attend JuliaCon. :slight_smile: I live in Braga (~350km from Lisbon) and am very much looking forward to meet other Portuguese Julians and the entire Julia community — hopefully the event will give rise to an active local community!
