OpenOffice UNO Programming with Groovy
Carl Marcum

The talk will discuss using the Apache Groovy programming language with Apache OpenOffice UNO API's and some associated projects that allow this to happen. Projects include the Groovy UNO Extension that adds convenience methods to the OpenOffice API's allowing less coding, an OpenOffice Extension that adds Groovy as a macro language to the office, and an associated extension to add sample macros to the office written in Groovy. Examples of usages like Groovy scripts as OpenOffice client applications, OpenOffice macros in Groovy, and a compiled OpenOffice extension application in Groovy.

Building and porting Apache OpenOffice
Damjan Jovanovic

Apache OpenOffice currently suffers from a terrible build system and limited portability between platforms and compilers. This talk will cover efforts to switch to a faster and more correct build system using SCons, the automated converter that has been developed to help with that, and the status of ports to 64 bit Windows, AArch64, newer MSVC compilers, Clang, Python 3, and newer versions of Java.

An open source contributor since 2006, and contributor to OpenOffice since it was in incubation, Damjan has been its most prolific developer.
