I am working on the implementation of native controls for the native Mac OS X version of OpenOffice.org.
How did I become an OOo developer?
I first joined the Mac OS X porting team as a member of the Google Summer of Code 2006 program. I spent my Summer learning about OOo' source code and VCL in particular. I was able to add the Fullscreen capability and worked on some geometrical shapes representation. After the end of the program I decided to keep contributing for two reasons. First it is very interesting and it gives me the opportunity of acquiring a valuable experience. Second it wouldn't have made sense to just stop after spending a lot of time learning the structure of VCL, the features of the Carbon API and how to use them.
