On 19th October 2018, at Welle7 Workspace in Bern, Switzerland, we attended DINAcon – the conference on digital sustainability. Our General Manager, Michael Meeks, had a talk about “How best to migrate to LibreOffice”, where he explained the best ways to move to a supported Open Source and Open Standards solution. Also, he talked about Collabora’s latest work with our partners, and our new tool to migrate existing legacy Visual Basic line of business apps.
If you missed his talk then check out the slides above for the complete presentation:

Great news from Bern – we won the open source classic award at DINAcon! 🙂
For this award were running a lot of amazing open source products, including Collabora Online and Collabora Office. We are honored to receive this award – it is a big motivation for the whole team! Thanks a lot everyone for your support.
The conference ended with the hacknight and of course that we couldn’t miss it. It was the perfect time to work on LibreOffice bugs. 🙂
#DINAcon2018 HackNight is the perfect ending for a wonderful conference.
Worked on a @libreoffice bug with @michael_meeks, met lovely people, shared interesting ideas and learned many new things.
It was a blast, already looking forward to next year ? pic.twitter.com/F3aCiueoWa
