LibreOffice Base Demo

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.

Abstract:

Cryptography has been in the news a lot lately. We'll start with a quick overview of some of the major recent headlines, specifically about the NSA's attempts to circumvent and break encryption and what experts are recommending to stay as secure as possible online. This will be followed with a high-level overview of cryptography. We'll look at where it's been made easy to use, and were it's not so easy. Then we will dig into the details of using GPG from the command line, to encrypt documents and to verify software packages.
