No excuses this year: We’ve made sure to be able to announce the dates for Nextcloud Conference extra early so everyone has a chance to keep a free spot in their calendars and come hang out with us in Berlin!
The next edition of the Nextcloud Conference will happen on September 14-15, 2019. As usual, we will be hosted by the Technical University in Berlin for a full week we can spend the time before and after the weekend making Nextcloud even more awesome than it is!
What’s the plan?
Our event consists in a weekend of talks and workshops. During the days before and after that weekend, we host what is basically like one of our roughly bi-monthly Contributor Weeks weeks on steroids. The whole event is 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!
Saturday and Sunday, September 14-15
Saturday and Sunday is the time for the “real” conference: We kick off each day with a dozen lightning talks and an inspirational keynote.
The later 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 – a great opportunity to get to know more awesome people from the Nextcloud community in a relaxed setting.
Friday, September 13th, and Monday-Friday, September 16-20
On the Friday before the talks and the week after, 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.
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.
