Michael Meeks - Novell


OpenOffice.org (OO.o) is the richest Free office suite available and the only real solution available for the next several years that can let people switch from Windows to Linux. This talk will also show why deep Gnome integration with OO.o is so important.

I'll present a few short demos of OO.o for those as unfamiliar with it's weight of features as I was when I started hacking it. I'll also show what Novell has done to OO.o and explain why we are investing heavily in it.

I'll also give a mini-tutorial to inspire some confidence in building it and going around a development iteration, and show the developer tools we have provided to help you deal with 8 million lines of C++. We'll also discuss some areas where new contributors in such a huge endeavour can make an instant impact, how to re-apply that valuable Gnome experience, and get engaged quickly.
