Readers of this blog should be familiar with Libre Office – The free and open source office productivity suite for both individual users and enterprise users, as well. Over the last one year (since its inception), The Document Foundation has brought in a lot of improvements to this software with a regular update cycle.
In order to facilitate an interaction between members of The Document Foundation, Free Software advocates, Contributors, Users and well wishers of the Libre Office Suite and also to celebrate the first year anniversary of The Libre Office project, the First Libre Office Conference is being organized in Paris, France from October 13 to October 15, 2011.
Conference attendees will have an opportunity to meet and mingle with The Document Foundation members and Libre Office International Community, among others. They can also attend the various talk sessions concerning the development and usage of Libre Office on various topics, including:
‘One year of Enterprise Deployment, The way Ahead’, ‘Complaint to Feature: A Guide to Contribution’, ‘The Usability of Open Source Office Suites’, ‘Good API’s and Libre Office’, ‘Towards a better Libre Office for Windows’, ‘Successful migration in the Local gov. of the second biggest city in Hungary’, etc. You can have a look at the compete program from here.
So, if you are a contributor/ well wisher of Libre Office and if you are in France or can be in France during this October, why not drop in? There is no entry fee to attend this conference, but you need to register in advance.
