Subject Re: Is any one here familiar with OpenOffice?
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2012 13:26:26 GMT
It's really encouraging and warm to see many people active here...also
allows me a chance to introduce myself.

I joined Symphony development in 2002. My experience includes the
development on SmartSuite filters which was contributed to OOo by my
colleague, ODF, PDF, XForms and some miscellaneous aspects. I had my
contribution to ODF/Open Formula spec. I then moved to team management by
leading dev team. I'm also familar with the feature comparison of office
products, so I can also help on planning, prioritization, communication,
documentation if time allows.
