Who am I: Dear Community, my name is Marina Latini, Italian and 33 years old. I studied Computer Science at the University of Perugia. I’m a free software advocate since 2007, promoting free software and open standards. In 2010, I was one of the first Italian members of the LibreOffice community. I’ve been an active member of the Fedora Project from 2009 to 2013, and an openSUSE advocate since October 2011. I’m involved in several events, migrations and trainings related to LibreOffice both in the public sector and in schools. Starting from 2013 I’m working at Studio Storti as team lead of the LibreOffice Division. In the past 2 years I was honored to be a member of the TDF Board of Directors and I’m thankful to all the people that rely on me for this important role.
Why you should vote me: From the very beginning of my career, I was focused on the relationship between society and technologies, remarking where was possible, the importance of free software and open standards adoption. I had the opportunity to get a job where I can share my passion and the knowledge acquired during these years. Thanks to TDF community and the election as member of Board of Director, I had the possibility to maximize my efforts and working hard for one of the biggest community projects in free software history. A lot of things have been done, but is not still enough; together we can achieve more, spreading all over the world all the good things that this project has been able to realize. I feel that I have still a lot to offer to TDF, for the people of the community and for the ones that will come. Our project is growing fast with contributors from several countries and we need to focus much more on lowering the threshold barrier, being a real welcoming community. Keeping in mind our charitable entity we can’t forget to interact with schools and university, spreading the knowledge and mentoring new contributors. Finally, I would like that our community will become as much as possible inclusive, and never let out who, just in appearance, looks like different from us; openness is a state of mind. What are your question about the future of TDF and LibreOffice? Feel free to keep in touch with me.
