FOSSCOMM 2023 was a blast presenting "Organizing Secure Collaboration for Project Teams with ONLYOFFICE DocSpace"


The Free and Open Source Software Communities Meeting (FOSSCOMM) for the year 2023 took place in the beautiful city of Heraklion, Crete, from October 21st to October 22nd. FOSSCOMM is an annual event that brings together professionals, enthusiasts, and advocates of open-source software to exchange ideas, experiences, and knowledge. It was the second year for me attending such a conference in Crete. I was so happy meeting my friends after a year of hard work.


At my booth, I offered a range of swag for visitors that includes pens, stickers, pouches, card holders, and post-it notes, all adorned with the distinctive ONLYOFFICE logo. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, with many attendees expressing keen interest in ONLYOFFICE. Some individuals have even shared their positive experiences, already being avid users of the platform and expressing their satisfaction with its capabilities and features. It's been a great experience sharing the ONLYOFFICE brand and engaging with those who appreciate its value.

My presentation

Working with large teams of internal and external users can be a challenge, especially when it comes to security and collaboration. ONLYOFFICE DocSpace is an open-source collaboration platform that provides a scalable and secure way to manage users and documents. One of notable talks during this year's conference was my presentation titled "Organizing Secure Collaboration for Project Teams with ONLYOFFICE DocSpace."

Presentation Overview

The presentation focused on the challenges of working with large groups of in-house and external users and the need for a scalable platform that offers tight control over user roles to create a stable and secure collaborative environment. The solution to all that is ONLYOFFICE DocSpace, an open-source collaboration platform designed to address these challenges.

The Problem

In the contemporary world, project teams often span across different geographical locations, time zones, and organizational structures. This necessitates the need for tools that can facilitate secure collaboration while ensuring a high degree of control over who has access to what information.

Solution: ONLYOFFICE DocSpace

ONLYOFFICE DocSpace was presented as a simple yet powerful solution to these challenges. The platform offers a room-based structure that allows the creation of multiple separate spaces, each dedicated to specific purposes and user groups. This approach enables organizations to maintain a well-organized and secure environment for collaboration without the steep learning curve often associated with complex collaboration tools.


The presentation emphasized several benefits of using ONLYOFFICE DocSpace for organizing collaborative processes:
  • Scalability: Whether a project involves a small team or a vast group of collaborators, ONLYOFFICE DocSpace can adapt to meet the needs of any scale of operation.
  • Security: The granular control over user roles and access ensures a high level of data security and privacy.
  • Efficiency: By streamlining the onboarding process and simplifying navigation, the platform enhances the efficiency of collaborative efforts.
  • Integration: ONLYOFFICE DocSpace supports integration with other tools and services, making it a versatile solution for various workflows.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: The platform connects project stakeholders in a single, user-friendly environment, fostering better communication and cooperation.


My time at FOSSCOMM 2023 was truly amazing! The event was filled with a myriad of engaging and informative presentations, providing us with valuable insights into the world of open source technologies. The keynote speakers were not only informative but also truly inspiring. After a day filled with knowledge and inspiration, we were thrilled to attend the Ubuntu 23.10 Release Party. It was a lively and celebratory gathering, where we indulged in delicious souvlaki, sipped on cold, refreshing beer, and savored a delightful Ubuntu Minotaur-themed cake that added an extra layer of sweetness to the festivities. Plus, we couldn't resist getting our hands on some awesome Ubuntu swag as mementos of this memorable event, making it a truly complete and enjoyable experience (thanks Philip and Aaron for this awesome party). Connecting with fellow Ubuntu enthusiasts while enjoying these culinary treats made the event even more unforgettable.


The presentation on "Organizing Secure Collaboration for Project Teams with ONLYOFFICE DocSpace" at FOSSCOMM 2023 shed light on the challenges of managing collaboration in a digital age.
