Thanks for all LibreOffice community people

This event was already done, but it was just a first step to promote LibreOffice in Japan. We hope to continue to go such event periodically.

One more good news. Kohei Yoshida, calc Hacker (and a member of Japanese Team) won the "OSS Contributors Award" from Japan OSS Promotion Forum. The day before our miniconf, we had a ceremony of the award and Kohei-san had been there, and of course we had attended our miniconf also as a special guest, and made a short talk for us. And his report is very nice to understand how our event was for non-Japanese speakers. Thanks, and congrats, Kohei-san!

The video letter from Italo was also nice gift for us. Watch this (English; Japanese captioned).


Now we proud to say that we, Japanese LibreOffice community, have done the first whole-day event!

In the "mini" conference, we had very interesting sessions about how to use LibreOffice little bit deeper, migration case study, introduction of new features of 4.0 or anything else. If you are already familiar LibreOffice or not, you will be able to enjoy the day for Japanese local.

It was a collaboration event with the Open Source Conference Tokyo 2013/Spring, one of the most famous FLOSS event in Japan. We'll use same building, but almost separately. Of course some people had attended our event whole day, other people had attended the program they have interest.

And same evening, we had a LibreOffice 4.0 Release party. Lots of people had gathered. Wow!

Several office-oriented cloud services such as OneDrive support Open Document Format (ODF); international standard document format. If we'll combine LibreOffice (or other OSS ODF office suites) and OneDrive-like service, we can work in cloud without fee.
