Why volunteer?

Volunteering your time at the Nextcloud Community Conference offers numerous benefits, both personally and professionally.

  • Learn and Network: Gain hands-on experience and connect with experts and enthusiasts in the open-source community
  • Get insider access: Be an integral member of our team and witness the behind-the-scenes at our largest community event of the year
  • Develop skills: Enhance and hone your team building, collaboration, technical and public speaking skills
  • Give back: Contribute to the success of the conference and the broader Nextcloud community. Your efforts help ensure the event runs smoothly and remains a valuable resource for attendees
  • Fun experience: Be part of a dynamic, engaging event, meet new people, and make lasting memories

Become a volunteer, get travel support

To ensure everything runs smoothly, we are calling on passionate volunteers like you to join our team. Whether you are a seasoned Nextcloud veteran or new to the community, your enthusiasm and skills can make a significant impact. As a volunteer, you’d help out with tasks like:

  • Helping out at the registration table – greeting guests, handing out swag, providing information, etc.
  • Assisting with the technical support of keynote speakers
  • Passing around the mic for Q&A after keynotes and panel sessions
  • And more! (with still plenty of time to enjoy the conference yourself!)

Every volunteer receives up to 80% of travel support to cover their transportation to and from the conference as well as the hotel stay in Berlin. Other expenses like food are not covered.
