Amsterdam, The Netherlands (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Japplis, a company based in Amsterdam, starts the development of an open source office suite. This office suite, named Joeffice is developed in Java, one of the most popular development language with a reported 10 million users (source Wikipedia). The office suite will contain a word processor, a spreadsheet software, a presentation software, a database editor and eventually a drawing software. The development of the software will be based on principles like quality of code versus quantity, no hard coded English text to allow internationalization of the user interface, reuse existing libraries and pluggable and updates online.
The software will work on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It will be also possible to run the application online in a browser.
The first release of the software should be available in 30 days. Each day a video will be posted on YouTube about the development progress and how to develop an office suite in 30 days.
The presentation of the project is available at http://youtu.be/6oJyaUzkQVM. People interested can also subscribe to the launch announcement at http://joeffice.launchrock.com. The first subscribers will get free access to the online version.
