Talks & Workshops

In the weekend of September 14 and 15 we have a program with talks and workshops to provide a chance to learn and improve coding skills on and around Nextcloud. For example:

  • Write your first nextcloud app
  • Intro to the Android app dev process, why you should join the design team and how we do performance testing
  • Status updates on the Calendar, Theming and iOS apps

On Monday the 16th we have a special Enterprise day with a focus on enterprise and large scale Nextcloud usage.

Code of conduct

We want everybody to feel welcome at the event. Please be mindful of our code of conduct

The conference is an open space which means potential issues. Please be sure that you are comfortable with that. Of course, you can always ask people not to take pictures or video of you but note that there will be video recordings of the talks.

Berlin and accommodation

We gathered some hotel options for you! Be quick, last year many hotels already had no space left in May...

  • Ibis Budget Berlin Kurfürstendamm This affordable hotel (starting below Eur 50/night) is two U-bahn stops or a 25 minute walk away from the University. Most of the core developers will be staying here.
  • Youth hotel Aletto Kudamm (starting at Eur 50) is in walking distance.
  • Hotel Amelie is just a quick U-bahn trip away and is affordable.
  • Novotel Berlin Am Tiergarten This hotel costs about Eur 75/night but is very conveniently located at the closest S-bahn station. You may hear the train early in the morning or late at night though.

If these hotels are full or not to your liking, you can use for example this site to find something close by the University.

Last year

The Nextcloud Conference 2018 brought 200 Nextclouders to Berlin. Read our blog to learn more and watch the talks on our youtube channel.
