Tracks on development, marketing, migration and community success
The Document Foundation to host official ODF Plugfest and ODF Plugtesting
The LibreOffice community today announces the program for its Berlin conference (October 17th to 19th). Taking place at the conference center of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi), and sponsored by leading players Canonical, Google and SerNet, it is not only the annual gathering of the worldwide community, but also meeting point for governmental and corporate adopters and innovators.
“With three tracks in parallel, plus the ODF Plugfest, including ODF Plugtesting, this years’ LibreOffice Conference is the major event for everyone interested in the development of free office suites and the OpenDocument ecosystem at large”, says Volker Merschmann, member of the program comittee.
Jacqueline Rahemipour, lead organizer from the host Freies Office Deutschland e.V., states: “Our program reflects the broad engagement and diversity of the community, and includes talks and workshops from various areas of the project. Interested users, developers, marketeers, as well as corporate and governmental adopters are invited to come to Berlin, to exchange ideas and jointly work on shaping the future of free office suites.”
Interested participants are required to register no later than October 8th at http://conference.libreoffice.org/registration
Following the project’s principles, the conference system has been implemented exclusively using free software. Board member Andreas Mantke has been developing an addon, based on Dexterity for the Plone CMS.
