Who is this for?

Welcome to the Co-op Cloud documentation 🥳

The documentation is aimed at a technical audience: tech co-ops, collectives and individuals who are curious about Co-op Cloud or are already running and managing Co-op Cloud deployments.

A more general public may still find these pages useful but if you're just looking for a quick overview of the project from a less technical perspective, you can take a look at

We'd be happy to hear feedback about our documentation, if it was helpful, what was missing, what was confusing, etc., please get in touch!
