Our official Nextcloud conference 2020 hashtag is #nextcloudconf2020 – let’s connect! 

Online event

Due to the current 😷 crisis, the conference will be a bit different this year. We want to facilitate the same sharing of ideas and collaboration as we always do, in a remote-friendly way. Our plan is as follows:

  • Participants 👾 get an account on the Nextcloud conference server 👤
  • You participate through a live 🛰 Talk 📽 🗒️ video and text chat
  • Every talk is followed by a live 🛰 Q&A ❓ session
  • Your questions guide our live 🛰 interviews 🎤 with speakers and sponsors
  • Ask questions at our live 🛰 🗣️ virtual booths
  • We stream live 🛰 pictures 📷 a live blog and social media using #nextcloudconf2020
  • Team chats 👥, live 🛰 workshops and much more!
  • Join our PARTY 🎉 – a relaxed, casual chat about the meaning of live 🤖 (42)

This year our theme and inspiration is working from home – at your home office! Below a nice video explaining why #Nextcloud is awesome for #homeoffice.

During the hackweek we collaborate on Nextcloud improvements in design, functionality, stability, performance and features. We share code, thoughts, inspiration, beer and knowledge, working in areas like:

  • Coding (PHP, JS, C++, Objective-C, Java)
  • Design & Front-end
  • Testing
  • Translation & Documentation

Read our blog on the Nextcloud Conference 2018 to get a feeling of the event. We will try to reproduce this online – having multiple rooms around various subjects, regular calls and workshops.

Talks & Workshops

In the weekend of October 3 and 4 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


Check out the full program!

The event is made possible thanks to the financial and practical support of Nextcloud GmbH.
