Frank Karlitschek
ownCloud.org - FOSS alternative to cloud data storage
Note: WE ARE MEETING AT CIVIC HALL!! We'll need names, and you will need IDs. RSVP will open Tuesday Jan 26th, 2016, 4:30pm.
For many people cloud means storing data in an abstract place where it is always available, and this is a wonderful feature. However the privacy, security and availability risks are high, because in the end you are just putting your data on someone else's computer. ownCloud is an Open Source project that aims at bringing the cloud back in your hands while maintaining the ubiquitous access features that make the cloud paradigm desirable to so many users. This talk will cover topic such as cloud service decentralization, cloud federation and will cover ownCloud feature-set and roadmap. Links: owncloud.org github.com/owncloud
Afterwards: Join us afterwards at The Storehouse Pub where we'll continue the discussion over drinks and/or food. The Storehouse Pub is located at 69 W. 23rd Street.
