LibreOffice 2019

@evavranici, no worries. It was on very short notice anyway.

Looking forward for meeting @IzabelaBakollari and @anxhelo in Munich!

Best, Bjoern

Hi everyone, I am not a member of Open Labs but a regular attendant of their events. I am actually employed in a company but I would like to contribute in C++ in LibreOffice in my free time. If this is possible please tell me.
Thank you.

All the best,
Alba

Alba welcome onboard :slight_smile: I wanted to clarify that it is not mandatory to be an Open Labs member to contribute in any free open source project.

As this just came up elsewhere: due to the recent spam waves in freenode IRC your nick has to be registered and identified with the NickServ service, see https://freenode.net/kb/answer/registration for how.

If you want to join via a [m]atrix client (IRC bridged room) instead of a dedicated IRC client then please see https://github.com/matrix-org/matrix-appservice-irc/wiki/End-user-FAQ and look for err_needreggednick and the following How do I register/identify to NickServ? section.

Hi all,

so I hope this is not too short a notice, but maybe we can follow up on the topic we had in the last call: The suggested time for that is tomorrow Tuesday 20:00 CET (Tirana/Berlin time) again at:

I hope some of you will be able to make that: I have discussed with some LibreOffice community members and with Izabela and Anxhelo at the Hackfest in Munich and hope we have some good starting points. Again sorry for the short notice, we selected the date quite ad-hoc in Munich hoping for the best.

Note this call will be mostly about organizational things (like Hackfests, other Events). But I hope we can then move on to more direct LibreOffice contribution topics once this is done. :wink:

Best,

Bjoern

Joining as well.

Thank you for organizing the call today @Sweetshark and for continuing to support our local community. Izabela and myself will share the topics of our discussion in the meetings we have at our community. More specifically we will inform about:

  • LibreOffice hackfest idea in the first or second week of March 2019
  • LibreOffice presence at OSCAL 2019
  • bi-weekly tech calls between LibreOffice devs and local LibreOffice contributors that want to get involved at a technical side of LibreOffice

In addition, @IzabelaBakollari and @anxhelo will share their experience in Hamburg with the local community in the next days.

Hi Redon, all,

More specifically we will inform about: […]

thanks for sharing these ideas and keeping the inertia in Tirana!

In addition, @IzabelaBakollari and @anxhelo will share their experience in Hamburg with the local community in the next days.

Great! If you post something where we can link to it, I’d be happy to give it more visibility: I likely will write a report on the Hackfest myself on my blog (which also is also aggregated on planet.documentfoundation.org) and could link that in. Doesnt have to be a blogpost, even e.g. a forum entry here should be fine!

Best,

Bjoern

It’s so great to see the local LibreOffice community grow even more. @Anisa_G & @Xhoana.B we are having the LibreOffice Month in November and I think that will be a good opportunity for both of you to get started. :smiley:

I have a back pain and my laptop is very big and heavy (it’s a gaming laptop), is it possible to use one of the laptops that are at OpenLabs for the time I am there and resume the work on my laptop when I’m home?

No problem. It is just easier for people to have their laptops so they can finish what they start when get back home.
