Student's Work

This web-site http://wi.wu-wien.ac.at/rgf/diplomarbeiten/ contains material related to OOo programming that may help students research basic technologies or the creation of applications. It includes many examples of OOo programming, as well as Prof. Flatscher's class material, seminar papers, and student Bachelor and Master theses. Be aware that the technologies used in the older papers may have been superseded by enhanced versions that make programming OOo even easier.
