We embarqued in this adventure since several months ago, to help organize a DrupalCon in Latin America; There is so much to do with that that is amazing what lies behind the curtain of one of this great events. In planning the event we face the decision of trainings, as is usual in DrupalCon, and as it is explained on this DruapalCon Latin America's website post it was decided that it was not possible.
Let me start by saying, I believe that everyone needs to be treated with respect and courtesy. I believe that my space ends where yours begins. I believe that happines is a state of mind, and is a decision. And I believe that if I give you respect, I want the same back. But, even though, respect is universal the perception of it changes culturally.
