Build your next cloud file-server with Nextcloud

RSVP on Meetup


Why is Nextcloud the least-hated and most-loved cloud file server?

Because it doesn't suck, that's why!

Share your files with your friends, family, co-workers, whoever you choose, and *not* with anyone else! (looking at you, NSA)

In this class you will learn the basics of building and using your own Nextcloud cloud file server!

We will work through the steps needed to get a running and secure Nextcloud cloud file server. You will learn a few best practices along the way.

We will also learn some of the fun stuff you can do with a cloud file server, like sharing files with each other, and installing extensions.

Bring a laptop with SSH, a web browser, the desire to have fun and learn.

What we're about

The Software Freedom School exists to teach the world how to use and why to choose free software.

David L. Willson and Heather L. Willson started SFS in 2013 to help teach the world free software and to feed the whole student, mind (techie classes), body (delicious food), and spirit (libre software). We host Software Freedom First Saturday at the SFS HQ or Englewood Public Library: From 11am - 3pm you can learn about free software.

There are other events throughout the month and activities you can become involved in: Linux Camp and Study Groups to name a couple.

Our ideal members, via Meetup, are people, just like you, looking to learn more about freedom in the software community. It could be a new graduate, a person looking to change careers, someone who is super savvy but has been using the proprietary software for too long!

We are a community based company in the Denver area. We want to partner with hacker-spaces, maker-spaces, LUG's, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and small, free schools like us. Our goal is to teach the world how to use and why to choose free software and it would be wonderful if you joined us!

We look forward to meeting you and are excited for you to be part of the libre community!
