Hi,

https://owncloud.org/providers/ has some free hosting plans.

A features overview is available here https://owncloud.org/features/. You most likely will find additional info / documentation at https://doc.owncloud.org

Development documentation is available here:

If you want to develop code, you probably don't want to use a service that manages the cloud for you. For development it is the best to use a local webserver or a virtual machine.
