Last week, our Hackweek took place in Stuttgart. We aimed at preparing and polishing Nextcloud 12, and we assessed our progress with team members and community.
Hackweeks are always an energizing time at Nextcloud. As we work remotely most of the time, they allow us to gather and discuss with other team members and the community, which we’re particularly happy about. Several community members joined every day, especially on the week-end. Giorgia was even here with us during the whole week! It reinforces our goal to be open and transparent in everything we do.
Thursday was supposed to be pancakes contest day between our team members, but as we expected, it was a pretext to make as many pancakes as we could eat (and some more, we even had to store them in a large saucepan). We will open-source our recipes here soon, stay tuned!
Besides having pizza and homemade pancakes, we worked on Nextcloud 12 and updated progress. We coded until dawn, discussed the future of Nextcloud GmbH during an open meeting and had a lot of fun together. Join us next time! In the meantime, you can have a look at upcoming community meetings and events.

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.
