Nextcloud 17 Beta 1 is out, who’s ready for testing? https://nextcloud.com/blog/nextcloud-17-beta-1-is-out-whos-ready-for-testing/ #nextcloud #news
u can tell me what u want, but since there is no native dav-support in #android, using a #nextcloud calendar for a team full of regular users, is terribly inconvenient. and no one is really willing to pay "so much" money for davx5 just to participate in the calendar so they had to do extra steps and i had to teach like nine people now... not sure if everybody is 100% set by now, but the ones i met in person should be fine.
You may know @nextcloud offers a free open storage system, but did you know it also has its own app ecosystem?
There are lots of extra apps you can add to your Nextcloud:
(Includes collaborative document editing, music streaming, video calling, calendar syncing, note taking, XMPP chat and lots more)

Site etiquette indicates my first toot should be by way of an introduction. Seldom comfortable tooting my own horn (pun intended)* I'll keep this brief(ish).
I chose to undertake my study in a business school, grubby though commercial ends may seem to elevated minds, because Burke was an intensely practical thinker. As he noted:
'‘The End of learning is not knowledge but virtue; as the End of all speculation should be practice of one sort or another… [for] Knowledge is the Culture** of the mind; and he who rested there, would be just as wise as he who should plough his field without any intention of sowing or reaping.'***
In this context, it seems fitting to attempt to apply Burkean research to practical ends.
I am also a passionate advocate for technology reform, which drew me to Mastodon, as I do not think unrestricted access to an individual's data is necessary for the provision of services. #ProtonMail, #Signal, #Threema, #NextCloud, #Mastodon and co. are all demonstrating that FAANG methods are not the only viable way of providing digital connections.
*Thinking intended puns, I am always reminded of the joke about a man who entered a local newspaper's pun contest. He sent in ten different puns, in the hope that at least one of the puns would win. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.
**Culture in the original sense of ploughing for sowing later.

#Nextcloud introduces collaborative rich text editor – Nextcloud
A #QOTO update for all those using our NextCloud or GitLab services (free for anyone hosting open-source projects). We recently figured out why most of you have had trouble uploading large files to NextCloud or using the CI on GitLab. Turns out our Nginx reverse proxy had a 10M limit on file size.
The issue has since been fixed. If anyone has any continued problems let me know.
#ProTip : utilisez #PostgreSQL pour votre #Nextcloud avant que la migration de base de données n’ait besoin d’un paquet d’heures pour s’effectuer.
NextCloud is a really good privacy-friendly alternative to Google Drive, Dropbox, Google Calendar and many other online services.
You don't need any tech knowledge to use it!
The easiest way to sign up for Nextcloud is to use their official "Simple sign-up" page, which directs people to their preferred providers:
(Of course, if you are good with tech you can self-host if you prefer 👍)

Someone was asking for federated #Streaming options a few days ago?
(I'm afraid I can't find the toot anymore.)
I think #Nextcloud might be worth looking into.
As far as I can tell it supports "screen sharing" (i.e. video streaming, no?), chat, and federation between instances. It also has a Fediverse compatible plugin/client, but probably not for streaming?
I don't know if anonymous usage is possible, though. I'm not at all sure how it all works, they don't seem to have a wiki 😅
