Indonesian LibreOffice community: recent activities

Rania Amina from the Indonesian LibreOffice community writes:

On Wednesday, 18 May 2022, I had the opportunity to talk in one of the sessions at the Virtual Visit of SMK Amaliah 1 Ciawi Bogor. This activity is a routine agenda for Amaliah Vocational School in the form of seminars and visits to institutions or communities to broaden students’ knowledge of Information and Communication Technology to Support Creative and Innovative Education.

I represent the Indonesian LibreOffice community, given the opportunity to provide material for the activities. The topic that I conveyed revolves around LibreOffice and FOSS in general, and how the open source community ecosystem can be well developed so that it can be a space for self-development before pursuing a career in that field.

This event was held virtually, starting at 08:00 WIB (Western Indonesian Time/GMT+7) until 12:00 WIB, with around 90 participants. The enthusiasm of the participants in this activity was quite high, considering that apparently both LibreOffice and FOSS were new things for the students. On this occasion, I also conveyed to them to never hesitate to start contributing, both in the coding and non-coding spheres, for example as testers, bug hunters, making designs for promotions in their environment, creating events related to LibreOffice, and more.

We hope that – after this activity – LibreOffice ID will collaborate again with Amaliah Vocational School to organize offline activities in the future.

Many thanks to Rania and the community for their great work! Learn more here.
