Frank Karlitschek

Frank Karlitschek, CTO, Community Leader and Co-Founder, ownCloud Karlitschek is ownCloud's visionary, chief cheerleader and community leader. A long-time KDE contributor, Karlitschek three years ago saw a problem coming. In January 2010, He told a standing-room-only audience at Camp KDE in San Diego that Dropbox was threatening their privacy and he intended to do something about it. He quickly wrote the original ownCloud code – gathering an extremely active, dedicated and growing community around him. Soon the community – and he – realized that businesses had an even greater problem and they began writing extensions that would allow ownCloud to fit right into a company's IT infrastructure. Karlitschek joined with Markus Rex and Holger Dyroff to create ownCloud Inc. in 2011. He leads the ownCloud community and is responsible for all aspects of product development. Previously, Karlitschek managed engineering teams for more than 10 years and worked as managing director at several internet companies. He attended the University of Tübingen, where he studied Computer Science.
