h1. Apache OpenOffice: Project Update and Future Direction


h4. Description

An introductory profile of the OpenOffice project covering all aspects of the project. We
will include examples of how OpenOffice complements other Apache projects.

h3. Abstract

OpenOffice graduated to Top Level Project in October 2012 following two very successful releases
generating more than 25M downloads in 2012. It is the largest end user software project within
the Apache Software Foundation. Not only does the PMC fulfill its duties to makes its source
code generally available, but it also provides binary distribution on multiple platforms for
millions of consumers around the world.

This talk will detail the key areas of the project providing illustrations of how volunteers
are making contributions on many different levels including: - core development of the (5)
modules that comprise Apache OpenOffice - QA & Test - Translation - Programmability -
Marketing - Communications - Community Development

Demonstrations of the most recent OpenOffice builds will be included.
