[board-discuss] Candidacy for a BoD seat - Eliane Domingos de Sousa
I am Eliane Domingos de Sousa, 40, Brazilian member of The Document
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: http://blog.pt-br.libreoffice.org/
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.
