LibreOffice at the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2019

Free software projects, such as LibreOffice and GNU/Linux, are developed by communities spread across the world. Most of the work takes place online, but there are many events for developers and supporters to meet face-to-face. One such event is the Chemnitzer Linux-Tage (Chemnitz Linux Days), in Saxony, which took place this year on 16 and 17 March. And the LibreOffice community was there!

Stefan Unverricht, Thorsten Behrens and Mike Saunders had a stand with LibreOffice flyers, stickers, books and other merchandse – along with a PC to demonstrate the latest version of the suite. Of course, most Linux users are well aware of LibreOffice, but there were still various questions on these topics:

In addition, Stefan, Thorsten, Mike and Katarina Behrens gave talks about LibreOffice, The Document Foundation, and EGroupware integration with LibreOffice Online. Most of the talks were in German, and you can find them – along with audio recordings – here. From the other talks, we learnt about schools in Chemnitz that use LibreOffice, along with small organisations and churches.

Thorsten summarised the event: “It was very nice, with excellent talks, and a good spirit like the Paris Open Source Summit. The venue was lovely, while the talks were well attended. We should definitely go again next year!”
