The annual LibreOffice conference was held in Bern at the beginning of September. Main topic of the conference presentation “The Big Draw on LibreLogo.org” was about the successful Wikipedia contribution using LibreLogo, see the slides in a hybrid PDF with some extra notes. Thanks to András Tímár for the presentation!
SENID 2014 (Digital Inclusion National Seminar) at Passo Fundo University, Brazil, organized also a 4-hour LibreLogo workshop, during the 3-day conference at end of the April. Gilvan Vilarim, lecturer of the workshop, reported that the event had 15 participants, including teachers and some students (one of them was deaf, and she used the assistance of a Libras interpreter – Libras is the Brazilian version of the sign language for deaf people). The participants found the workshop to be very interesting, and they planned to continue using LibreLogo. (Thanks to Gilvan for the pictures, too.)
Here is the A4 size LibreLogo flyer made for the LibreOffice booth at FOSDEM 2014. It contains a maze and its compact LibreLogo source code. This SVG animation shows its work. The source code of the program:
HIDETURTLE PENUP FILLCOLOR “BLACK”
REPEAT REPCOUNT [
z = INT RANDOM 2
RECTANGLE [3.5+21*z, 3.5+13*(1-z)]
One of the results of the 2-day LibreOffice hackfest after the conference is a small improvement for LibreLogo: now code formatting/translation doesn’t modify the comments of the program (see this and other achievements of the hackfest).
