Collabora Online at the Nextcloud Conference 2023

On 16th and 17th September 2023, some of the team from Collabora Online had the pleasure of joining our partners Nextcloud at the Nextcloud Conference 2023 held at MotionLab, Berlin. It was a privilege to meet so many of their team, new and old, as well as wider members of the open source community.

The conference kicked off with the key note introducing Nextcloud Hub 6 which focuses on creating a healthy meeting culture and implementing a local AI, Nextcloud Assistant.

Fabrice Mous also presented the very latest Hub 6 Office features including features from our Collabora Online 23.05 release such as typography settings, shortcut overlays and change tracking for numbered lists and our 23.05.4 release which includes font previews. The new release also sees 2x faster performance in loading comments and rendering documents.

Check out the Nextcloud Hub 6 key note – it’s definitely worth a watch to see all the exciting advancements that are available now!

Over the weekend, key note speakers Max Schrems, Simon Phipps and Katrin Fritsch shared about various European data privacy policies, The Fourth Sector and why digital sustainability is important. There were also panel sessions, lightning talks from the community and practical workshops.

French partner, Arawa, presented 2 lightning talks: “Usability testing” by Clementine Hemel and “One year of contribution to Nextcloud” by Jérôme Herbinet.
