About the location
Istanbul, historically known as Constantinople and Byzantium, is the most populous city in Turkey and the country's economic, cultural, and historic center. Istanbul is a transcontinental city in Eurasia, straddling the Bosphorus strait (which separates Europe and Asia) between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. Its commercial and historical center lies on the European side and about a third of its population lives on the Asian side.

Quick Start to LibreOffice Development
The steps needed to start contributing to LibreOffice as a developer will be explained quickly. Participants should already be familiar with the linux environment and development tools. The narration will be made on Debian, but with minor changes it applies to all distributions. This is not a training session, and there will not be any hands-on activity.
Date & time: 12:00am, Sunday, April 9 Location: 2nd Hall Speaker: Muhammet Kara (muhammetk AT gmail DOT com)
* Getting the source code of LibreOffice * Compiling the source code * Finding an easyhack to work on * Sending the patch to gerrit
Some "TDF/LibreOffice" and "I love free & open formats" stickers were given out during the event.
Attendees were given info about the process in a very fast pace. Our talk was in parallel with a very popular figure, who is also one of the organizers of the event, so there were less than ten people in the hall who are interested in LibreOffice. Nonetheless, the result was positive in terms of increasing the visibility of and awareness about LibreOffice. (We should watch for timing if we decide to attend this event again, and note that the audience of this event is much smaller than the Academic Informatics Conference's audience.)
