LinuxFest Northwest 2015

Bellingham, WA April 25th & 26th


LibreOffice is community-driven and developed software shepherded by the not-for-profit organization The Document Foundation. The foundation's objective is to nurture and develop office software that is free to use by everyone.

LibreOffice is developed by users who, like you, believe in the principles of free software and sharing their work with the world in non-restrictive ways. At the core of these principles is the promise of better-quality, highly-reliable, and secure software that gives you greater flexibility at zero cost. Beyond this, the driving factor behind the community is personal choice and transparency, which translates practically into wider compatibility, more utility and no end-user lock-in to using just one product.

The community behind LibreOffice is the heart of the project, without which we would not have the resources to develop the software. The passion and drive that every individual brings to the community results in collaborative development exceeding expectations and, best of all, you can be part of it in a multitude of ways.

The Community Bylaws, developed by our community members, guide the way we work and encourage new members to contribute in a way which benefits the whole community as well as themselves, while protecting our rights as developers under the free software Lesser GNU Public v3 license. To see who has already contributed to the LibreOffice project, please visit our credits page. Will we see your name there soon?
