LibreItalia Conference 2018

After a great LibreOffice Conference, followed by the LibreOffice Hackfest held at modulE and the SFSCon in Bolzano sponsored by CIB, the LibreOffice community met again in Sanremo on December 1st, for the annual conference of the Italian supporters and contributors, members of the LibreItalia association.

Unfortunately CIB wasn´t able to attend the event, but thanks to all the LibreItalia social channels, we did have the opportunity to interact with all the attendees. LibreItalia was using a custom Telegram channel dedicated to the conference and the conference was commented via twitter using the hashtag #libreitaliaconf.

The mayor of Sanremo opened the session, sharing great interest in the importance of the digital culture, formats and open source software for citizens and students, too. Enio Gemmo, LibreItalia president, and the entire board talked about all the past initiatives of the ongoing year and the plans for 2019.

The speech of Francesco Di Costanzo, president of PA Social, presenting the activities and goals of the association that are pointing towards the development of new communication via social media in order to increase and improve the relationship between the PAs, companies and the citizens was really appreciated.

LibreItalia is strongly committed to schools! Therefore this years` session after lunch break was focused on schools, with reports on past and ongoing activities.

The conference could be the first step for bringing a new municipality to adopt LibreOffice and ODF.

Next meeting of the association will probably be between April and May 2019, in the beautiful city of Palermo.

We´ll hopefully be there.

Let´s CIB!

Summary: LibreOffice Hackfest 2018 in Munich

The LO hackfest 2018 in Munich has been a great opportunity for improving LibreOffice and to strengthen the community.

The overall motto of these events that are organized around the globe by the community is always „knowledge sharing and having fun“! More than 30 attendees took part during the three days of activities by hacking around LibreOffice or discussing about improvements, strategies and much more. 

This edition was hosted at modulE, the new open space powered by CIB, and was organized by CIB in cooperation with The Document Foundation.

The event started on Friday 26 with the introduction of the attendees and the list of goals to be achieved during the event. And as every hackfest is a moment of fun too, Anxhelo Lushka, Mike Saunders, Florian Effenberger and Marina Latini turned, after the introduction warm-up, into cooks and prepared different pastas for everybody.

Saturday was a full day of hacking and the results confirm that all groups worked hard in order to maximize the effort and take advantage of the opportunity to meet in person and work together face to face.

An excellent finish was the walking tour in the old part of town that offered the opportunity to explore some architecture and history.

Great event: Happy hacking at CIB!
