LibreOffice at Info Savaria 2011

Info Savaria is a traditional conference for Hungarian informatics teachers. It is held every year in Szombathely, Hungary. This time I was invited to give a talk about LibreOffice. I summarized the history of the project and the new features of LibreOffice 3.3. I tried to emphasize the advantages of the new free development model.

Although Microsoft software is prevalent in Hungarian educational system, an increasing group of devoted teachers use and teach free software, including Linux, Gimp, and LibreOffice. I find conversation between power users and developers very useful. Understading teachers’ point of view helps developers in prioritizing bugs and feature requests.
