  • Next up, we had a bunch of LibreOffice Expert magazines to give away to schools and local communities. They’ve all been claimed now, but if you still want a copy, you can get one from the publisher.

  • This year, LibreOffice was once again a mentoring organization in the Google Summer of Code (GSoC), a global program focused on bringing more student developers into free and open source software development. Five projects were finished successfully. Students and mentors enjoyed the time, and we presented some of the achievements, which should make their way into LibreOffice 24.2 in early February 2024!

  • The biggest event in September was the LibreOffice Conference 2023 in Bucharest, Romania. We had an awesome time, with talks, workshops and social meetups – more to come on this blog (including presentation videos) in the coming weeks!
