My name is Kohei Yoshida. 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.
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 needed it. Prior to that, I worked at SUSE where I enjoyed being part of SUSE’s LibreOffice team. Prior to SUSE, I worked on the Go-OO variant of OpenOffice.org code base as part of Novell’s OpenOffice.org development team. My area of expertise within OpenOffice.org / LibreOffice was Calc.
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.
