The ownCloud Contributor Conference

Like the last two years, we do two distinct things at the conference – both of which are very much open to people new to ownCloud development:

  • Hackathon: We work on making ownCloud bigger and better, adding functionality, hunting bugs and getting some real work done! See our special ‘Starters room’ if you want to get started.
  • Talks and Workshops We set aside some time to discuss what is going on in ownCloud and share ideas, knowledge and inspiration in lightning talks, keynotes and workshops. Both talks and workshops are an excellent place to get going with ownCloud development.

The focus is on getting work done on ownCloud and we look forward to helping you dive into the code and implementing your vision for data ownership!


We will talk to some hotels to reserve rooms for the conf. For now, you can of course book room yourself but it’s cool to wait for some offers to appear on

We will open registration in the first quarter of next year. Like always, entree is free but we really appreciate it if you register! You can subscribe for news and status updates here so you’ll be notified when registration opens.
