Most of the conference videos are up on Youtube and they are very informative and fun. There are a lot of good talks. I’ve picked a few to showcase here but you should check out the whole playlist of SHA2017 videos.
Decentralize! Self-hosting in your own home using Sovereign
In the Decentralize! talk, the software Sovereign is explored and shown to be a good way to set up your own personal cloud and host your own services and data. Sovereign is a set of playbooks that can be run to install the software on a server that you run. It’s similar to the Freedom Box project.
The software you can self-host with Sovereign is:
- Dovecot, Postfix and Roundcube for email servers and a webmail interface
- Jabber/XMPP messaging server with Prosody
- RSS reader
- VPN server with OpenVPN (FreedomBox also can do this)
- Git code repository hosting
