Cooking with Camlistore

Short Form


Learn to store, search, share, and organize your data using Camlistore, the open source personal storage system.


Camlistore has been described as “Git for your @#$%”. Store your stuff -documents, media files, social media posts, email, location tracks, alien invasion plans – encrypted and across multiple storage backends.

In this session, learn how to start a store, import from online services, sync with your mobile phone, access your data as a filesystem, go back in time, securely collaborate with GPG, publish to the web, and build your own apps. Out in time for tea!
