Focus Friday during the Nextcloud Conference

The Nextcloud conference will feature its usual schedule of talks, workshops, and intensive coding sessions. But on Friday, we have a special focus on the use of Nextcloud in large deployments at universities, large enterprises, hosting providers and others. A large number of customers and partners is working with Nextcloud on deployments and migrations and will be there to be part of the conversation. Our goal is to share knowledge and experience about optimal Nextcloud deployments and to have a strategic discussion about what the Nextcloud architecture can do today and where it should go in the future.

Why attend?

The event will give you an opportunity to discuss the capabilities you need from Nextcloud with the people who wrote the code, rather than a sales representative, management or marketing people. This way we can go beyond the problems and actually discuss solutions and directions for the future! It is the perfect opportunity to learn new skills and best practices from experts and peers and find out how you can get the most out of your Nextcloud installation. When you go home you’ll have learned how to improve the security, scalability, performance, and stability of your cloud servers!


While the general conference program is still being finalized, we have put together a preliminary program for the Friday.
