  • Financial Aid Launches for PyCon US 2020!

    The financial aid program aims to bring many folks to PyCon by limiting the maximum grant amount per person; in that way, we can offer support to more people based on individual need. The financial aid program reimburses direct travel costs including transportation, hotel, and childcare, as well as offering discounted or waived registration tickets. For complete details, see our FAQ, and contact pycon-aid@python.org with further questions.

  • 7 Reasons to Get Professional Programming Assignment Help

    Programming is one of the most popular disciplines in schools and universities, and many students learn programming languages at this point. If you are one of them, you know how complicated it can be to study programming, especially if you get a lot of other assignments from other classes.

  • Adding stateless support to vicodec

    Prior to joining Collabora, I took part in Round 17 of the Outreachy internships, which ran from December 2018 to March 2019. Outreachy is a paid, remote internship program. Its goal is to support people from groups underrepresented in tech, and help newcomers to free software and open source make their first contributions. Open to applicants around the world, Outreachy internships run twice a year.

    Once your application is approved, you must pick an open source project to make a contribution to, in hopes of being selected as an intern, and teamed with experienced mentors. You can read more about the program here.

    In my case, I was selected as an intern to work on the media subsystem of the Linux kernel, and my mentors were Helen Koike, (who is now my colleague at Collabora!) and Hans Verkuil (who works for Cisco and has been working on the media subsystem for around 15 years).

LibreOffice & Open Document Promotion Poster

Continuing LibreOffice Shortcuts poster, here's educational poster I made to spread LibreOffice's ODT - ODS - ODP to all people in all countries. These formats are known with the name Open Document Format and these are better than Microsoft's. The goal of this poster is to invite people to change their habits of saving as DOC - XLS - PPT formats into saving as ODT - ODS - ODP formats which are better. This poster is an English adaptation of my Indonesian version few years ago. I encourage you to place this on your schools, offices, websites, blogs, social media, and other places. You are free to adapt and share it with your own language. If you are curious, download LibreOffice application here for Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux. Okay, now let's share once again! Read more
