by Erico Andrei for EuroPython 2012

Over the last decade Brazilian government embraced open source and Python for its online initiatives, but being a very decentralized organization with loose guidelines regarding technology definition, it is an example of how collaboration happens despite barriers lack of coordination.

This talk will cover major success cases like:

  •, the main hub for the Brazilian e-gov initiative. Built with Plone CMS and maintained by a team of over 70 people – journalists, developers, designers and integrators.

  • Interlegis program, an initiative to provide system automation, using Django, Zope and Plone, to more than 200 legislative houses through the country.

  • Electoral Justice with an unified web presence approach for all 28 instances.

Also this talk will explain how organizations within the government collaborate with each using their lower decks.
