I started with a more-or-less weekly rhythm, with the idea of making “videos of the week”, like the tips of the week we have on the Twitter account. I have kept that pace for around three to four years. Today, I make videos more according to the inspiration of the moment, or following a question that was asked. I also try to add English subtitles.
The other thing I do in the project is to respond punctually to questions on English-speaking Ask LibreOffice site (not as often as I would like).
How did you get involved with LibreOffice?
I get involved through my work, at the time with OpenOffice.org version 1.1.3 if my memory is good. The software imported less than the ODF format for this project, consisting (in part) of using the software conversion features. I was immediately seduced, and reported to the project my experience in creating training support, user support, etc.
What was your initial experience of contributing to LibreOffice like?
Helping first: I was active member on the OpenOffice.org forum, then on all the French mailing lists (discuss, users, QA etc.) Then I moved on to testing new versions (reports or comment on Bugzilla). I also participated in making content for the wiki (creation/update of FAQs, macros, release notes…). And I participated in the documentation project (proofreading).
What tools do you use for your work?
Eclipse, Vim, Notepad++, Atom, VLC…
Finally, what does LibreOffice need most right now?
I probably do not have a sufficient overall vision of the project, but here are some topics that resonate in me (in no order of priority):
