Collabora Productivity attended the LibreOffice Conference 2016 and it was amazing. The event was held in Brno. This easy to reach city is a technological hub in the Czech Republic and it boosts many tech companies, such as RedHat. In order to show our support for the LibreOffice project and for this event, we became one of the Main Sponsors. (more…)
This weekend close to ten thousand Open Source enthusiasts will gather in Brussels for mussels, monk-made beer, 549 talks, and a great deal of hacking. Collabora Productivity will be out in force – at talks, booths, and a hackfest. Look out for our team in the ‘Open Document editors devroom‘ track – we’ve printed a fresh run of branded purple shirts and will be sporting them around ULB Campus.
Eight talks by Collaborans will range from LibreOffice on Android, to secure signatures in Writer, and include a presentation by Vice President Michael Meeks on recent radical performance improvements to Calc.
LibreOffice talks by Collabora
- Markus Mohrhard OpenGL backend for LibreOffice
- Tor Lillqvist: PDF signing in LibreOffice: no longer experimental

The LibreOffice conference booth, run by the Document Foundation, will be on the second floor of "building K", between Kolab Systems and Apache OpenOffice. Collabora Productivity team members will congregate there – pay us a visit for informal news and demonstrations of Libreoffice from Collabora. We’re also keen to meet developers looking for career opportunities – drop off a CV.
Following FOSDEM itself, the LibreOffice Hackfest, hosted by Betacowork, will see old hands and new join forces to work on features such as change tracking, QR Code support, and template management. Join veteran hackers, including six Collabora staff, for two days of collaborative task-oriented learning.
See you there!
