My name is Kohei Yoshida, and this is my blog page. I blog about my activities on LibreOffice and other stuff.

I am married, a father of two, and live in the suburb of Raleigh, North Carolina. I’m originally from Japan, where I spent the first 22 years of my life. My parents and all my relatives are still there, so I hope to go back there every now and then. Because my wife is from Shanghai, P.R. China, I also occasionally travel to Shanghai to visit her family as well.

I previously worked as a consultant principal software engineer for Collabora Productivity on all sorts of interesting and rewarding projects to improve LibreOffice and to provide services around LibreOffice to those who need it. Prior to that, I worked at SUSE, where I enjoyed being part of SUSE’s LibreOffice team. Before SUSE, I worked on the Go-OO variant of OpenOffice.org code base as part of Novell’s OpenOffice.org development team. My specialty within LibreOffice is Calc – a spreadsheet program.

Before I joined Novell / SUSE, I worked at SlickEdit as a software engineer, where I discovered the world’s most productive code editor. SlickEdit stays my editor of choice to this day.
