This year, Nextcloud will again be at FOSDEM! Last year, we had a team of over a dozen enthusiastic volunteers to present our project to the thousands of visitors and this year, we hope to have an even bigger and cooler presence. What can you expect from us? A booth, a talk and presence in the DEV rooms!

Meanwhile, you will be able to find us with a booth in the K building on the first level. That means we’ll be close to friends from LibreOffice, Gnomes and Dragons, and distributions CentOS, Fedora, openSUSE and Gentoo. As well as our devilish friends from FreeBSD & the sunny crew from illumos! We look forward to meeting many of you and if you’d like to join the crew & the fun, you can volunteer here for the booth team! Hugs guaranteed!

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 […]
