Getting started with Nextcloud

SeaGL 2019

In this presentation I plan to introduce Nextcloud and provide examples of how to get started using it. This will include:.

  • History of Nextcloud
  • Why should you use Nextcloud instead of Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.
  • Ways to get a Nextcloud instance
    • Self-hosted at home
    • VPS
    • Service provider
  • How I use my Nextcloud server
    • Cal and CardDav
    • Note taking
    • File sync
    • Online office suite
  • Q&A

I am open to this talk being in either a 30 min or 50 min slot. It will scale easily.
