openSUSE + LibreOffice Virtual Conference 2020 started on October 15 2020. Opened by Lothar Becker (TDF Chairman). Due to some problem in platform (https://oslo.gonogo.live), the organizer moved all sessions to Jitsi on TDF infastructure (https://jitsi.documentfoundation.org).
I presented “Building Upstream Contribution in Local FOSS Community” on day 2 (October 16, 2020). You can find the slide here. It was interesting that before my talk, there are three talks from the Asian side that strengthen the Asian community.
