Emiliano Vavassori
  • The Document Foundation

Emiliano is a tech passionate since his teenage; he came in contact with FLOSS (and Debian in particular) early in his undergraduate days, becoming instantly an avid FLOSS user; in 2007 he started working as System Administrator, always with a big bias towards FLOSS technologies, and in the spare time as public speaker at local events, after realizing the ethical and social implications of FLOSS. He had the chance to actively take part and coordinate some local communities, but mostly with the Bergamo Linux Users Group (BgLUG) and with LibreItalia, the Italian local community of LibreOffice. Since 2017 he is also a Document Foundation member and an advisor in the Boards of Directors of both LibreItalia and BgLUG. Since some years he has the luck to work with a small company that provides IT support and consultancy for SMEs, using FLOSS as first resource to meet their needs.
