OOoCon 2008 is a double first - it's the first OOoCon to be held outside Europe, and it will also see the biggest concentration of OOo developers ever assembled in one location on this planet. Thanks to generous funding from the OOoCon sponsors, we will try to ensure that everyone who should be in Beijing, can be in Beijing. If you have ever contributed to OOo, or want to find out how to get involved - mark the date in your diary now!

The Location

RedOffice ScreenshotSince Redflag 2000 and IBM officially joined OpenOffice.org in 2007, Beijing has become the second hot-spot for the development of OpenOffice.org and several derived products. The contributions to OOo from China are steadily growing. It's an exciting time: China's software developers and users are able to look at office software with fresh minds, untainted by years of exposure to Microsoft products. Beijing, the Chinese capital, is at the centre of this activity. A cosmopolitan city with a rich history, it has re-invented and renovated itself for the Olympic games this year, making 2008 the ideal year to pay a visit.

The People

OOo MentorEvery year, OOoCon receives great feedback from attendees. It's not just a unique opportunity to network with fellow enthusiasts, it's also a great social occasion. Come and meet the real people behind the email addresses and the IRC nicknames. We look forward particuarly to welcoming a large number of attendees from the East and South-East Asian communities, especially Japan, Vietnam and Korea. This year's OOoCon is a wonderful opportunity for developers from East and West to meet and exchange experience and ideas.
