From Joost Andrae <>
Subject Introduction
Date Sun, 04 Sep 2011 11:04:29 GMT

I'd like to introduce myself:

My name is Joost Andrae and I live in Hamburg, Germany.

I was working on StarOffice/ full time since I joined
StarDivision as QA engineer in 1995. This was the time when StarOffice 
development started. Since several years I'm working as program manager 
to coordinate development efforts, to do some presales negotiations, to 
be contact for partners and doing a lot of other things. Besides I've 
been involved as QA engineer into agile development (SCRUM) of a web 

My main field of activity was the Calc spreadsheet application, the Math 
formula editor and the Chart application. Furthermore I was involved 
into QA/testing of all client server and web based StarOffice 
development as well as into server based products like the document 
converter application and the SDK. The crash reporting functionality was 
also one of my babies which I tested, QA'ed and administered. At the 
time I mainly worked as QA engineer I also tested font and printing 
technology used within SO/OOo as well as I did performance and memory 
tuning measurements of the application.

I'm involved into QA (as QA Co-lead), l10n (coordinating QA) and i18n 
(RTL, CTL) efforts as well as I cared about the download infrastructure 
(mirror network and Bouncer/MirrorBrain), the download pages and 
releases of the en-US versions.

I join as an individual, not as an Oracle employee. This and all future 
posts from me do not reflect any company opinion that I am affiliated 
with. These posts reflect my private opinion only.

Kind regards, Joost
