Sponsor's Keynote by allotropia's Thorsten Behrens
Leading the LibreOffice Team at allotropia.
Thorsten was part of the OpenOffice.org project almost from the start when he joined the then-Sun Microsystems development team back in early 2001. He's a computer scientist by education, and a Free Software enthusiast by heart, a geek from early childhood - and someone who was lucky enough to turn a hobby into an occupation.
During his now twenty years of tenure in the project, he's spent most of his time hacking the code in areas ranging from the build system and platform abstraction libraries, through to Impress and Writer. Thorsten is a former co-lead of the late graphical system layer project, member of the OASIS ODF technical committee, and technical advisor on the ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34 working group 4.
