Hi all,

I am Eliane Domingos de Sousa, 40, Brazilian member of The Document Foundation.

I have my small company that does services around LibreOffice technology and ecosystem. My company also deals with other open source technologies. I teach classes on LibreOffice and my associates do consulting in LibreOffice for my customers.

What have I done for LibreOffice

Since the birth of LibreOffice, I was myself involved with it. It was important to feed this little baby and let it grow and find its place in the open source marketplace.

I employed all the means I had to develop the use and the brand of LibreOffice in Brazil. Since 2011 I managed to run social networks around LibreOffice. In Brazil, and with the help of the community we have Google Plus, FaceBook, Youtube and Twitter dedicated to LibreOffice and in Portuguese. Links for social networks: | | |

LibreOffice Magazine is one of the achievements I am proud to be the main editor and diagrammer. This bi-monthy e-magazine is completely done in LibreOffice and is covers all aspects of the LibreOffice community, including how-to's, case studies, interviews and also on FOSS. In december, its 8th edition will be released. Link for magazines:

I also participated in almost every open source business event in Brazil, either sponsored by the private industry as well as from the government, representing LibreOffice and The Document Foundation. In the last 3 years, I gave lectures on LO in events, schools, I participated in round tables and workshops, and managed LibreOffice booths in almost 20 business events in Brazil. Link for some pictures:

I also manage and publish news in the Brazilian LibreOffice blog, as well as our pt-BR portal. Many of you have already seen all the graphic designs I did for the blog posts as well as the social networks I manage with the community. Link for blog:

Recently I got nominated to coordinate the translation of ODF1.2 standards to Portuguese so that the Brazilian National Standard Board can use it as standards for electronic documents.

What I intend to achieve in the Board Of Directors.

The BoD position is an important position for the community. It requires time and dedication.

I intend to be an active voice of the community inside the Board. A careful mix between non-developers and developers in the board is important to bring TDF close to its users and supporters.

So, this is what I do for the project in Brazil. I have an enormous passion for the project, an enormous proud to be part of TDF and I'll try to do my best.

I'm available to answer any questions.
