[board-discuss] Candidacy to the BoD elections: Osvaldo Gervasi


Hi,

with the present message I want to express my wish to participate in the
elections for the next BoD

*Who am I*

Osvaldo Gervasi, 60 years, married, 1 daughter (28) and 2 sons (26,17).

Associate Professor (Information Processing Systems) at Perugia
University, Italy.

Presently Director at TDF and member of the LibreOffice Documentation Team.

From 2007 to 2013 President of the Open Source Competence Center (CCOS) of
Regione Umbria, as such promoter of the LibreUmbria project.

Member of TDF since 2013, Migration and Trainer Certified Professional.


Fan of LibreOffice since the beginning of the Project (before fan of
OpenOffice,
which I promoted in particular since 2007) and of FLOSS in General.

Member of the Team of LibreDifesa project.


*Why I apply for the new BoD seat:*

**

I want to run for a seat in the next BoD after two years of the exciting
experience as Director,
to have the chance to further contribute to the project.

I want to promote LibreOffice among University students, in particular
Engineers and Computer
Scientists in order to let them approach the development of such a great
software with the moral
incentive of TDF, removing the barriers that they may encounter and
facilitating their work.

I would also stimulate students and teachers to select, for the Bachelor
and Master Thesis,
a task related to LibreOffice development, with a special attention to
CODE and LibreOffice On Line.

In fact,I thinkwe have toincreasethe number of developers.

I think that is necessary to stimulate and promote donations.

Furthermore, I think that it is necessary to morally support local
communities in promoting LibreOffice
and Open Formats, particularly among young generations
