What to bring:

Bring your own…

  • Lanyards: In light of sustainability purposes, we would ask attendees who have come before to bring their lanyard. If you haven’t been before, don’t worry, we will have badges for you to wear instead.
  • T-shirts: If you also have an old Nextcloud t-shirt, please bring and wear it! If not, then there will be a few t-shirts available.
  • Headphones: There will be free time and areas to work in, so be sure to bring your favorite set of ear buds or headphones if that’s your thing to get in the zone.
  • Laptop: You will need to bring your own laptop if you want to use one, as we will not have ones for rent or borrowing.

Arrival:

To get to our venue bUm, you can take the U-Bahn, bike, car, scooter, or walk depending on where your accomodation is.

The closest U-Bahn stop is Schönleinstraße or U Görlitzer Bahnhof. For instance, you can take the U8 from Alexanderplatz to Schönleinstraße, or take the U1 or U3 from Warschauwer Strasse to Görlitzer Bahnhof. We recommend using a Maps app on your mobile device.

Upon your arrival, there is bike parking right in front of the building. Car parking is limited, so coming by public transportation is advised by the venue administration.

Admission:

Once you’ve entered the building, you will be greeted at our registration desk where you will check in, receive a badge (if you didn’t bring your lanyard), and be able to ask any questions you might have.

Hygiene & safety:

Regarding the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic, basic protective measures are in place in Berlin which all residents and visitors must follow.

Currently that means that FFP2 masks are mandatory for all persons riding public transportation in all of Germany. See more here.

On October 3rd and 4th for Contributer Week, Nextcloud will be sharing the space with others, therefore we must require you to wear a mask when walking around in the building, going to the cafeteria, or to the restrooms. For the rest of the Conference, Nextcloud recommends wearing face masks for safety reasons, but it’s not required. In addition, there is no requirement to do covid testing or providing proof of vaccination at any time

We thank you for your cooperation in keeping everyone healthy and safe during the event.

Sustainability:

Nextcloud is committed to sustainable, responsible practices and ensuring empathy in a (digital) society. As we host a major in-person event, we are aware of our social responsibility and environmental impact. Therefore, we will recycle all we can and try to avoid waste. As for your contribution, we ask you to bring your old lanyard and/or Nextloud t-shirt from a previous event to help our cause. We hope to make the #NextcloudConf a sustainable and friendly environment for all so we can continue these events in the future.

Food & Drinks:

Every day of the conference there will be access to free water, soft drinks, tea, and coffee.

In addition, a complimentary lunch is provided every day including vegetarian, vegan, lactose-free, and gluten-free options. By registering for the event, you already filled out your dietary preferences. On Saturday for the party, we will provide pizza.

Breakfast, snacks, and dinners (except Saturday night) are on the attendee.

Accessibility & Inclusion:

We want to make sure that #NextcloudConf is accessible to everyone who wants to participate.

The entire conference will be held in English, however there’s a good chance you will meet other people attending who speak your native language as we attract many international visitors.

The venue is completely barrier-free and wheelchair accessible.

As every year, we will be taking photos and videos throughout the event purely for our marketing purposes i.e. photos for our website, a compilation video of the event. If you don’t want your photo taken or don’t want to be in a video, please email events@nextcloud.com.

At the Nextcloud Conference, we want everyone to feel part of the community and rest assured they are safe and heard. It’s a great time for unity and togetherness as we have fun, share ideas, and learn and grow. If at any time you get stuck, have any questions, or just need a mentor, please don’t hestitate to reach out to our team via email, Twitter, or other attendees.
