“Real Time, Secure Collaboration” presentation at Nextcloud Conference 2017

From August 22 until August 29, Nextcloud held their annual conference, including a enterprise day, providing enterprise focused talks about large scale use of Nextcloud, security, scalability, Real Time & Secure Collaboration with Collabora Online, and much more.

Collabora Productivity’s General Manager Michael Meeks gave a talk about Collabora Online in Nextcloud. Collabora Online is a powerful LibreOffice-based online office that supports all major document, spreadsheet and presentation file formats, which is easy to deploy in Nextcloud, as a simple extension. Key features are collaborative editing and excellent office file format support.

  1. Dear Michael,

    thanks for the great presentation at the Nextcloud conference. In the presentation you mention that LibreOffice/CollaboraOffice (desktop) and Collabora Online share most of the code. Now I wonder how much code is shared with regard to the new collaborative editing. Will it be easy to implement compatible collaborative editing in LibreOffice/CollaboraOffice (desktop), too? Are there plans to do so?

    Thanks, Gerry

    1. Hi Gerry,
      Almost all of the code is shared, but we bring all editing into the same process. Doing cross-process, asynchronous collaborative editing is a huge and rather problematic task to get right; we plan instead to make the web client richer and richer, so you don’t miss features from the desktop client on-line.
      Thanks for following us,
