Last weekend over a hundred Linux experts and contributors gathered in The Hague for the annual openSUSE conference. Collabora’s Michael Meeks presented the latest developments in LibreOffice, including a live demo of the cutting edge document editing features in LibreOffice for Android, and an introduction to the backend architecture of LibreOffice online.
Between talks on subjects such as community building, power management, and cloud infrastructure, Document Foundation Committee Member and Collabora partner Cor Nouws offered information and advice to attendees from his conference booth, and shared infographics and promotional materials. As a leading member of the Document Foundation’s Dutch Team, and Director of local LibreOffice training and services firm Nou&Off, Cor was ideally placed to field the crowd’s questions.
The event was run jointly for the first time this year, sharing a venue with the inaugural Kolab Summit. Hosted by Kolab, an Open Source Groupware application, the two days of talks ran parallel with the openSUSE Conference, and Michael contributed his second talk of the weekend titled “Producing business: driving development of LibreOffice-from-Collabora”. A video of Michael’s talk is being prepared and should be available in the next few weeks.
