Fedora Women´s Day München – at modulE powered by CIB

On October 19th, with the support of the local Fedora Diversity & Inclusion Team, we invite you to attend the Fedora Women’s Day (FWD), an event created to highlight and celebrate the women in open source communities like Fedora and their invaluable contributions to their projects and community.

The FWD will take place at modulE powered by CIB, the space for startups, events and more…

It’s an opportunity to learn about free and open source software and jump-start your journey as a FOSS user and/or a contributor. It also provides a platform for women to connect, learn, and be inspired by other women in open source communities and beyond.

This meetup is open to all the attendees and is not a “women-only“ event. As the seats are limited don’t forget to register via Eventbrite.

Check the program:

5:30 – 6:00 pm Open Source and why it matters!
(Speaker: Marina Latini AKA deneb_alpha)
The Open Source Initiative (OSI – https://opensource.org/) is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2018 and the talk will provide an introduction to the importance of open source, free software and knowledge sharing in open source projects.
6:00 – 6:30 pm Getting started with Fedora!
(Speaker: Bhagyashree Padalkar AKA Bee)
Learn about Fedora- an open source Linux distribution and how you can download a custom Fedora streamlined for your needs. Are you a student and want to build your skills? Have you always wanted to contribute to open source projects but never knew how to? We will talk about different paid and volunteer opportunities within the Fedora community and in other open source projects.
6:30 – 7:00 pm Behind the Open Web – a long journey of Mozillians
(Speaker: Manel Rhaiem AKA Mermi)
Manel is an open source contributor since 2011 and is actively involved in Mozilla. She will talk about Mozilla (the company behind firefox), different opportunities to contribute to Mozilla and her open source journey.
7:00 – 7:30 pm How to cook your own open source event
(Speaker: Florian Effenberger AKA floeff)
Eight years ago, the idea of open source cooking in Munich first was on the table and since then took place over a dozen of times already.
After the first meal it became clear immediately: You indeed can apply the principles of free software communities to other areas of life. Many contributors working jointly on a common goal, each of them bringing in their individual skills and interests, to create something delicious and tasty many benefit from – lots of fun for everyone included!
Created as a rather, well, “spontaneous” idea during our open source meetings, many free software enthusiasts nowadays bring their kids and family along to meet, cook together, have a good time and lots of fun, all of that (mostly far away from smartphones, computers or wifi).
In this talk, Florian gives an overview of open source activities in Munich, shares some wild ideas for the future and explains why open source and cooking have more in common than you may actually think. Bon appétit!
7:30 – 9:00 pm Hackathon, networking and pizza!
After the introduction talks we will start the hackathon session, supporting the attendees with the first
contributions, sharing knowledge and some tasty foods!
Join us and have fun!

LibreOffice Conference 2018 in Tirana

The LibreOffice yearly conference is THE annual community meeting and a great opportunity to discuss and share ideas with contributors, companies and public administrations from all over the world.

Our team was involved in internal meetings like the board of directors and the community meeting. The board met the new elected membership committee and discussed strategies and plans for The Document Foundation. The community meeting offered the opportunity to discuss about the internal daily jobs and workflows of the LibreOffice community. As active contributors, we are more than happy to support the Foundation and the community itself.

With the official start of the conference we had the opportunity to meet Erion Veliaj, Mayor of Tirana, that opened the conference with his inspiring and welcoming message.

During the conference CIB presented the last features implemented and the services available also thanks to our LTS support and consultancies.

Our commitment to the project is not only focused on developing LibreOffice but we are involved in several areas.

We strongly believe in open standards and open formats like ODF for breaking the vendors lock-in. We recognize the importance of data security and privacy with digital signatures. A usable product in terms of user experience and accessibility should support new and modern desktop environments and our developers are working hard in order to achieve this goal. We provide our services and experience for large migrations to LibreOffice following the official TDF protocols and we also provide free support to final users for free.

CIB at FrOSCon 2018

Die FrOSCon (Free and Open Source Conference) ist die größte Open-Source-Jahrestagung in Deutschland. Das CIB Team war dabei!

Dieses Jahr nahm die CIB, stellvertretend von Katarina und Thorsten Behrens von unserem LibreOffice-Team, an der Veranstaltung teil.
Katarina Behrens überzeugte mit ihren Work in Progress-Aktivitäten für eine bessere Unterstützung von LibreOffice auf KDE-Plasma. So auch Thorsten, mit seinem Vortrag zum digitalen Signatur- und Verschlüsselungs-Workflow mit LibreOffice.

Da die FrOSCon als bedeutendste Veranstaltung für die deutsche Open-Source-Gemeinschaft gilt, waren zehn unserer LibreOffice-Projektmitarbeitern dabei. Denn jedes persönliche Treffen ist eine gute Gelegenheit zum Austausch von Wissen und Ideen!

Sehr erfreulich bei der FrOSCon ist die Kinderecke FrogLabs, mit Workshops und Aktivitäten von Jugendlichen für Kinder und Jugendliche im Alter von 9 bis 16 Jahren. Dort werden die Kids und Jugendlichen an die Technik in Form von Programmierungen von Augmented-Reality-Spielen, Elektronik mit Mikrocontroller und Schaltungen und Robotik mit LEGO Mindstorms herangeführt.

Nächster Veranstaltungsbesuch von Seiten unserer Kollegen im LibreOffice Bereich vom 25.-28.09.2018 auf der LibreOffice Conference in Tirana!

CIB wird zum Sponsor von OASIS

Unser Beitrag zum Dokumentenstandard ist eine gute Gelegenheit, den freien Informationsaustausch auch in komplexen und professionellen Arbeitsabläufen zu verbessern. Man orientiert sich dadurch weniger an den Werkzeugen oder der verwendeten Software sondern konzentriert sich auf die tatsächlichen Inhalte der bereitgestellten Dokumente.

Interoperabilität ist ein Merkmal eines Produktes oder Systems, dessen Schnittstellen vollständig verstanden werden, um mit anderen Produkten oder Systemen zu arbeiten, sei es heute oder in Zukunft, in der Implementierung oder im Zugriff, ohne jegliche Einschränkungen. (aus http://interoperability-definition.info/en/)
