[libreoffice-marketing] Short report: LibreOffice Asia Conference 2019 Tokyo


Hello,

Last May 25th-26th (*), we had organized our first LibreOffice Asia
Conference 2019 Tokyo. Here is a short report about it.

- Official site: https://conf.libreoffice.jp/
- participants: 80
- the largest number of people in the past for LibreOffice events in Japan
- over the 20 people from foreign countries
- from Taiwan, China, South Korea, India, Italy, Germany, Albania, and Nigeria
- 25th was a conference day, one Japanese track and two English tracks
- includes two keynotes
- one was by Mark Hung about his story about LibO CJK issues
- the other was by Italo and Lothar
- all videos had been published at JP team youtube channel [1]
- ... we will add EN subtitles for JA talks near future
- and slides had also been posted at our site (although some are missing) [2]
- 26th included two events; the business workshop and CJK Hackfest
- in the business workshop, we had the certification interviews,
which was the first in Japan and the second in Asia
- and four new certified professionals were born (applause!)
- Eric Sun from Taiwan,
Jun Nogata, Hitoshi Sugimoto, and Jun Meguro from Japan
- and discussed LibO / FLOSS business in Asia / end-user certification
about ODF (proposed by Franklin Weng)
- in CJK Hackfest, DaeHyun Sung from South Korea had achieved to
solve tdf#125620 with help from Mark Hung and Takeshi Abe
- however, any other attendees who are new to LibreOffice development
(includes me) couldn't touch the "real" CJK issues in spite of the very
extravagant mentors
- whole the events, the lack of young participants is the next big issue
to be solved
- in the next opportunity in 2020, we thought that we are considering
that we will prepare some budget for a scholarship program

The photos taken by the participants are in TDF Nextcloud [3], but
our official photographer Masataka Kondo is so busy now that only
some of his photos have been placed. We're sorry.


(*) Almost two month ago... sorry for our laziness :(
