Presented by:

Thorsten Behrens

from CIB

Thorsten is a LibreOffice hacker and standards wonk. During his now nineteen years of tenure in the OOo & LibreOffice projects, he's spent most of his time hacking the code in areas ranging from build system, platform abstraction libraries, Impress and Writer.

Thorsten's a computer scientist by education, and a Free Software enthusiast by heart, a geek from early childhood - and someone who was lucky enough to turn a hobby into an occupation. After first working for Sun Microsystems on, he then went with a number of others founding The Document Foundation and the LibreOffice project.

These days, his day job includes substantial amounts of project management and customer interactions, which does not prevent him from still messing with LibreOffice code. He very gratefully acknowledges his employer CIB for sponsoring him having fun with open source all day!

This talk will look at the past year & what exciting things happened in the area of the Open Document Format.
