Content and Overview

This course is a quick and informative how-to that will help you bypass several bottlenecks in the process of ownCloud installation and configuration.

In this course, I will show you how simple it is to implement your own secure cloud services bundle: a file storage, note keeper, contacts storage, calendar and more. You can’t underestimate the importance and value of keeping your private files and data on the hardware you and only you have access to and control over. And this course will show you how all this can be done in a day, as long as you have a Linux server ready at your disposal.
