ODF plugfest
Towards real world interoperability.
Past experience has shown developers and technical management from larger and smaller vendors as well as community leaders have valued the chance to attend and work on real world interoperability.

This is the public lecture part of the 7th ODF plugfest, which is intended for a wider, non-technical audience interested in the current state of the art in office applications. This event will take place on Friday afternoon November 18th 2011.
