LibreOffice: Introduction to the best free office suite in the world:

  • August 10, 2014 · 1:30 PM

In this presentation, Kevin O'Brien will introduce the free and open office suite LibreOffice. He won't assume any previous level of knowledge on the subject, so it should be understandable by everyone, but even experienced users may find they learn a few things. We will look at all aspects of LibreOffice to give people an idea of what this suite is capable of doing. Future presentations will go into the different modules in more depth.

Kevin O'Brien has been writing in-depth tutorials which you can find at his web site at, and he also has a series of audio programs that air at Hacker Public Radio, where he operates under the pseudonym of Ahuka. Kevin has also done presentations at Ohio LinuxFest, Indiana LinuxFest, and Penguicon on LibreOffice.

    Please be cautious on Big Beaver Rd. for tomorrow's meeting as the road construction has hit high gear on the eastbound side. Traffic is currently down to one lane in front of our office.

    It is hard to tell how busy Big Beaver will be as this will be the first weekend of the construction. This morning Big Beaver is not looking impacted at all but it is still early :)

    If you prefer to come from John R Rd instead, take John R to Brinston Drive, Brinston Drive to Bellingham Drive, turn right (north), and take Bellingham Drive to the back of the INA building, a two story yellow brick building just west and adjacent to Altair. The driveway behind the INA building leads to the Altair parking lot.

    Similarly, if you prefer to come from the south via Maple Rd., turn onto Bellingham Drive, and follow the information above.
