Personal Website (but still a Work in Progress):


Website Projectplan

This plan is not fixed. It will be changed to the actual needs. (Also improved and expand)
  1. Initial Planning - Choose a focus, and keep it simple. (Marketing Team)
  • What's our goal in 1 Paragraph
  • What's our goal in 140 characters
  • Who will visit and Why?
  1. Content Planning (Documentation Team - Marketing Team and probably Website Team)
  • Information Architecture and Itemize your content.
Making a new Infrastructure for the Website based on the content we already have.

Some other crazy Ideas

Work in Progress - They will be refined by Time

My main Interest for Libreoffice is to improve the User Interface (UI). I don't have any idea, how long the actual UI is in use, but with now "LibreOffice" on the start, could be a good idea to start some changes in this area.
Make a Website which looks like a new fresh Application Website. (The Layout is okay, but i think for an Application it's not the best way to sell it)
Cut the big download Package. Make 1 Maincomponent and put all the rest little boxes (Plugins).
