Program for user days 2018

The EGroupware user days (“EGroupware Anwendertage” in German language) offer the opportunity to learn about EGroupware trends, learn about new solutions, benefit from best practice examples and get to know each other.

The focus is on digitizing your business processes with EGroupware, exchanging and editing documents online with Collabora Online and Team Collaboration.

By popular request we will have two parallel tracks this year . So you can decide whether you want to focus on administrative or on consulting issues.

We are constantly updating this page and keeping you informed about the program. Details of workshops and topics will follow in the next few days.

Most of the programm will be in german language.
