It can be a challenge to manage your data across all of your devices and many of today's traditional solutions require you to give up your privacy to a company. In these situations you don't have direct control over your data and it is hosted in a server far away. The goal of ownCloud is to enable users to have their own private cloud hosted on their personal hardware.
This session will follow Jos Poortvliet's 'Get Cloudy!' session: http://linuxfestnorthwest.org/session/get-cloudy Jos will be covering installation and using ownCloud.
I'll be demonstrating how to write an app for ownCloud as an introduction to contributing to ownCloud. I'll also be discussing creation of ownCloud Inc, the company behind the ownCloud project, and what this means for businesses, users, and the future of the project.
