We will be speaking at the Libre Software Meeting 2018 (or RMLL), in Strasbourg, between the 7th and 12th of July. Our team of participating XWikiers, Clément Aubin, Ludovic Dubost and Anca Luca, will be discussing about building a customized knowledge base in minutes, tips and tricks to finance free software, CryptPad - the Zero Knowledge editor and Open Food Facts.

What is Libre Software Meeting?

Libre Software Meeting is a annual festival open to all, with this year's edition articulated around transdisciplinary tracks. The main track is "Digital education: captivity factory or new emancipation?". The meetings will be in form of talks, workshops, round tables, chatrooms, hackerspaces and creation.

Who will be there?

Nowadays, most of his contributions to FOSS go into the development of the XWiki Open Source software, a great project in which he's been contributing for almost a year.
