Nextcloud 2017 Conference is coming
Five months from now, our annual Nextcloud Conference will take place in Berlin. On this occasion, we want to value what community and contributors are doing. Come and share with us what you’ve been working on: as far as it is Nextcloud-related, we are interested! Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th will be dedicated to talks, workshops and keynotes, and all days will be focused on getting stuff done, from discussion to implementation. Make sure to bring your laptop!
Tuesday - ThursdayFrom Tuesday to Thursday we will be busy working, coding, designing, discussing and working on the future of private, federated, secure cloud technology!
FridayFriday is our customer-oriented day. It will be focused around commercial use of Nextcloud. Subjects like scalability, security and performance will take center stage in sessions led by Nextcloud partners, customers and hosting providers.
Saturday and SundayOn Saturday and Sunday we kick off each day with a dozen lightning talks and a keynote. While we have yet to announce keynote speakers you should stay tuned for some big news on each day!
The afternoon is reserved for workshops where we discuss and work on subjects like the Contacts and Calendar app, Spreed.ME integration and more. Some workshops will give you the opportunity to go in depth into topics like security or writing new apps. We’ll also feature workshop with more of a beginner focus for those interested in getting involved in Nextcloud!
Monday - TuesdayWe will go back to what we do best: reflecting upon Nextcloud and getting our hands dirty!
As of today, registration for the conference is open and you can get yourself signed up on our conference website. We’ll keep it open until the event but would appreciate it if you’d register so we can plan properly!
Here comes the Call for Papers!Our call for papers is now open. We invite you to submit a proposal if you want to present or share something related to Nextcloud. Your proposal should be simple and short: just tell us in a few words about what you want to share with the other Nextclouders. Talks are 5 minutes, slides in PDF (to be submitted at least 1 week in advance) and a pre-arranged order so we can go through the talk without any fiddling in between with projectors or such.
We would like all talks to be submitted before August 1st so we can put a full schedule together. Still, the sooner the better!
