ContextNextcloud is an open source self-hosted productivity platform ↗ with functionality ranging from Dropbox to Slack. The company has a unique structure: their team is spread across multiple countries, they collaborate with open-source volunteers and they host regularly Hackweeks where they all come together.
ChallengeUnderstanding the system behind Nextcloud and its interdependent apps took some time. This in combination with the mainly digital communication via Github or Nextcloud itself was a very different way of working than I am used to.
OutcomeMy work resulted in the conception of new features. I updated user-flows, provided UI changes and worked on the unification of components for a general design system.
TasksOne part of my work was the redesign of certain features of the Nextcloud Talk:
Searching for existing conversations
Create a new 1:1 conversation
Create a new group conversation
Under constructionA more in-depth update follows soon.
