Lightning Talks

On both Saturday and Sunday of our Nextcloud Conference weekend, we will host our famous Lightning Talks!

Lightning Talks are ~5 minute talks covering a wide range of topics from how to build an app to topics on data privacy.


After the Lightning Talks on both days, we host 1 hour long workshops so you can learn a new skill or get motivated! From what it takes to actually to build your own app or contribute to Collabora Online (Nextcloud Office), you will get to participate at the conference in a more hands on way!
