I have a reddit account but I’m not posting alot.

Where should I post it?

Dunno, you would need to find threads where people already are discussing things relevant to your topic. Maybe @matthias or @felix.wolfsteller have some ideas about this

I’m intrested to join :slight_smile:


@Tuukka and @baderdean will put you on the participant list. Looking forward to meeting you there :slight_smile:


I’ve been playing with self hosting options for a couple of weeks now. I have a Nexcloud installed through Yunohost on a Virtualbox and it was working fine as a test.

But I am interested in the general conversation, as well as to learn more about Nextcloud capabilities, so I’ll be happy to join. Also because I still need to understand which way to go to install it to be honest, as every day I seem to discover yet another way to go about it (hello Juju and LXC), the options seem endless!


Great @Alessandro! Will put you on the list and keep you updated bad well :slight_smile:

Yes. It is.

However I chose my parameters and degrees of freedom carefully and with high standards on open source, avoiding locking in, keeping to open standards, integrity, security, domain neutral, community activity and culture, maturity, creativity, etc. I landed in this technology stack and I get more and more convinced that was the right way to go.

This can quickly become a technical discussion which I love to have with you if you like in another thread?


Hey! Came here from r/datahoarder. This place seems cool. I would like to attend the seminar.


Great to have you here! Will put you on the participant list.

If you tell us a bit more about what you are interested in we will be able to help you exploring the platform even more :).
