Been in control of our non-profit org about a year. I inherited it when the original board had to step down. We're finally moving the infrastructure from Google Drive to #Nextcloud.
By the beginning of next year:
+ Jitsi for our conferencing
+ Nextcloud for documents and collaboration
+ And we've been using Matrix/Element for our chat. Migrating our old boards from Slack.
This is not just about open source. This is also a simpler setup for our team.
@art Congratulations! 👏
Pretty much 1 year ago, we did the same @jefRLP.
The website was already on a selfhosted wordpress, but needed further improvement. We switched our entire communication to Matrix, hold B-weekly conferences via jitsi, moved all our documents and collaboration work to our own Nextcloud (very recently) and member-polls to a selfhosted limesurvey instance. We offer our complete infrastructure to our local city groups too (e.g. @jef_trier)!
@art How does moving infrastructure from cloud to self-hosted makes a setup easier? For me, the main advantage for cloud is actually simpler setup: no maintenance, ready integration and better support. Serious question from a guy who self-hosts almost everything beside e-mail.
