Three months from now, on August 23-30, our annual Nextcloud Conference will take place at Technical University Berlin. This is our opportunity to get together and make Nextcloud awesome (it already is, of course). Come and share with us what you’ve been working on: We want to hear about anything Nextcloud related! Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th will be dedicated to talks, workshops and keynotes, and all days will be focused on getting stuff done, from discussion to implementation. We are hands-on people so make sure to bring your laptop!
What’s the plan?
Our event is like one of our roughly bi-monthly hack weeks on steroids, taking place in bustling Berlin at the Technical University’s Mathematics building. Think intensive discussions and coding combined with nice drinks & food, only interrupted by good parties!
Thursday – Friday
On Thursday and Friday we will be busy working, coding, designing, discussing and working on the future of private, federated, secure cloud technology! Bring your ideas, laptop & get designing and coding with us.
If you want to build the next great Nextcloud app, or just meet the people Who Get It Done, join us!
Saturday and Sunday
On Saturday and Sunday we kick off each day with a dozen lightning talks and an inspirational keynote. While we have yet to announce keynote speakers you should stay tuned for some big news on each day!
The afternoon is reserved for workshops where we discuss and work on subjects like Talk, encryption, mobile clients and more. Some workshops will give you the opportunity to go in depth into topics like security or writing new apps. We’ll also feature workshops with more of a beginner focus for those interested in getting involved in Nextcloud. New to coding? NO problem, we’re open to prospective contributors with all skill levels.
On Saturday evening we will host a party – stay tuned for news.
Monday – Thursday
We will go back to what we do best: reflecting upon Nextcloud and getting our hands dirty!
As of today, registration for the conference is open and you can get yourself signed up right here or first learn more on our conference page. We’ll keep registration open until the event but would appreciate it if you would register in time so we can plan properly!
Our call for papers is now open. We invite you to submit a proposal if you want to present or share something related to Nextcloud. Your proposal should be simple and short: Just tell us in a few words about what you want to share with the other Nextclouders. Talks are 5 minutes, slides in PDF (to be submitted at least 1 week in advance) and a pre-arranged order so we can go through the talk without any fiddling in between with projectors or such. Workshops can be between 1 and 4 hours long and are meant to teach new skills (Write your first app! Security! Performance optimization!) or get things done together (implementing a new API across clients! Build a new app!).
Note that the talks are very low-key and low-stress: anyone can present and the conference team happy to help you practice a bit if you’re worried about talking in public. You will be among friends, no pressure!
Today, US-based file sync & share vendor Kiteworks announced their acquisition of ownCloud and Dracoon. Kiteworks points out that their customers now have access to their file-sharing application. It is to be expected they will not maintain 3 similar products, but customers will have to migrate to the US firms’ platform or look for another […]
As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
