    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. 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, will have first whole-day event!

    In the "mini" conference, we'll have 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. But we have to say sorry that every sessions will be in Japanese only. :(
