If you missed it or want a recap, read on!
The motto of the 2023 Nextcloud Conference is “Trust, Transparency, Together.” With the increasing demands of today’s collaboration platforms, transparency becomes an essential aspect for how these platforms handle and communicate data processes to both users and developers. Nextcloud firmly believes that trust and transparency will form the cornerstone of collaboration platforms moving forward, nurturing a reliable and secure digital environment.
To kick off this year’s conference, the Nextcloud team announced the brand new Nextcloud Hub 6 release! For the first time, Nextclouders introduced the Nextcloud Assistant, distraction-free features and other new tools to prioritize a healthy work culture.
Thanks to the Nextcloud team for the awesome announcement of Hub 6 and our healthy meeting and work culture along will all the new improvements in Nextcloud Files, Talk, Office, Groupware and more!
For our first keynote, Max Schrems hit the stage. As an Austrian lawyer with expertise on EU and US data privacy law, he took the audience through the intricacies of the new data privacy framework. With his experience fighting against previous data privacy laws in the European Court of Justice, the EU-US Privacy Shield and the Transatlantic Data Privacy Framework, he brought valuable insight about what actually goes on behind the scenes.
Following the keynote, Max was joined on stage by Katrin Fritsch, tech & climate researcher & consultant and Daphne Muller, Manager of Ecosystems & Alliances at Nextcloud as well as a privacy researcher.
Nextcloud Marketing Manager of North America, Brent Gervais started the talk with what “Trust, Transparency, Together” meant for each panelist in their area of expertise. For instance, Katrin Fritsch aligned “transparency” with the climate crisis and how government and companies are handling the CO2 emissions produced from machines creating AI.
Today, we had 9 Lightning Talks – our special 5 minute talks – from Nextclouders, developers and contributors about a variety of topics.
For instance, Varun Patil talked about his experience building high performing Nextcloud apps like his app Memories, a community maintained photo manager for Nextcloud.
In another lightning talk by Clementine, UX Designer at Arawa, a Nextcloud partner, she talked about the benefits of usability testing.
Thanks for joining us! Now, it’s time to mingle and chat with other attendees, speakers, partners and Nextcloud employees with a pizza party at our venue.
