LibreOffice Base Demo
Jeremy Davis
I have built a couple of LibreOffice Base databases I would like to share. One I use weekly to publish the Triangle Area Career Development Newsletter. The DB helps to manage and gather meeting info of our local groups and builds the newsletter formatted with HTML. I have built a nice task tracker to show off as well, which was developed over time at my work place in MS Access but then recreated with LibreOffice Base as a project to compare the two. I will demonstrate valuable timesaving features of the awesome LibreOffice Base program, which comes free with most Linux distros.
