Used my recovery day to do a little geek tinkering, and now my calendar and contact list are being served up to my phone via nextcloud rather than Google.

I like to post about this stuff not just because it interests me, but I feel like people need to hear that these sorts of privacy enhancing shenanigans are possible for less technical users.

I'm not an IT person. At best I'm an enthusiast that can read documentation. I got it done, maybe you can too.

OK. Thanks for sharing.

Self-hosted - owned server at "home"?
or
Hosting company?

Will you plan to serve your circus group members, or is this just personal?

We ended up tossing it on the same virtual host as our website, though I may move it to a home server later.

The plan is to eventually move our entire circus to open source solutions. Right now some brave clowns are the beta testers.
