OpenOffice.org’s annual conference kicks off this week in Barcelona. As a big supporter of OpenOffice.org – we’re the second largest contributor to OpenOffice.org after Sun – Novell will be there in full force. We’re a Premium sponsor, and Michael Meeks, Novell’s OpenOffice.org lead and a significant code contributor to OpenOffice.org, will attend, as will Guy Lunardi, one of Novell’s top desktop guys, and Alan Clark, who heads up our standardization efforts. Novell is presenting five technical sessions, ranging from VBMacro issues to dealing with Word and Office OpenXML challenges. New this year at the conference is the ODF Camp, which is sponsored by the OASIS ODF Adoption Technical Committee. The ODF Camp is meant to be a focused workshop for ODF and XML developers interested in identifying and resolving differences among key implementations of the ODF. Though co-located with the OpenOfficer.org conference, the camp is intended to draw participants from multiple word processor implementations.
Novell will have a display table set up at the gig, so, if you’re there, please stop by, and, for any media attending, we’d be happy to hook you up to speak with one of our guys at the event.
