Ymir Report #71 — Maintenance and upgrades

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Hey there! It's been a few weeks since my last update. My time in Japan wasn't as productive as I'd hoped it to be. The time zone wasn't friendly to me this time around and I wasn't able to get into a good work groove.Because of that, I mainly focused on consulting work and had nothing to share related to Ymir. I did manage to get some work done towards the...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Greetings from Japan! I've been here for the past two weeks after going to WordCamp Asia. This is probably my last trip to Asia for the foreseeable future. I will probably go to CloudFest instead of WordCamp Asia next year. I can't afford to do both. There has been little work done on Ymir because I had friends visiting Tokyo until last week. I've also been...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Heya! A bit late sending this report again. The last two weeks have been challenging personally and I've just focused on myself more. I did manage to get some things done, but I mostly took time for myself. #selfcare I got one product and one marketing change out. Business is still roughly in the same shape as before. I'm still thinking about things and...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Happy Monday! I'm a bit delayed sending this report out. (It's also not really edited 😅) I got back home at midnight from WordCamp Phoenix. I gave the serverless WordPress talk I gave at WordCamp Asia last year. The talk went great and the WordCamp itself was surprisingly good. I didn't expect to network as well as at a flagship WordCamp. But I did so it feels...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Happy New Year! It's been a little bit since the last update. I hope you're doing well 💖I took some time off during the holidays, but a lot less than I probably should have or needed. I ended up doing some work anyways 🫠 The big thing I did was write my year in review. This was a very draining exercise to do because I talk a lot about ADHD, mental breakdowns,...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Heya! This is going to be a quick update. I haven't had time to work on Ymir the past two weeks outside a small bug fix to the runtime. I mainly focused on consulting work. It was also American Thanksgiving two weeks ago. This gave me a first taste of holiday vacations. It seems like my brain liked it because it's been a bit of struggle to get back to work...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO Greetings back from Canada! I have largely focused these past two weeks on my consulting clients. I will probably do the same over the next two weeks. Otherwise, WordPress 6.4 just came out. WordPress 6.4 now recommends PHP 8.1 and 8.2. I decided that this was the time to add PHP 8.2 support even if WordPress still says it's in beta support. Business is going...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO As the title says, Ymir passed the 10,000 deployment milestone. It's exciting to see it being used by more people. Laravel Vapor has 3.5 million deployments so not quite at their scale yet! 😅 It's my last week in Tokyo. I did some touristic stuff in Japan last week. So didn't do a full cycle. I mainly wrapped up the code upgrade. Otherwise, I have a lot of...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO It was WordCamp Tokyo last weekend. It was a lot of fun to see the Japanese WordPress community. (Even if I don't speak Japanese 😅) It was really draining. I wasn't quite ready for that much social after my burnout. (I slept 10h last night 🤣) I've been continuing to do maintenance work on the application. I have a few things going on at once. It's been pretty...

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that I’m building. INTRO I'm back in Japan for the next five weeks. (I got here last week.) If you're going to WordCamp Tokyo, I'll see you there! So far, Japan has been very helpful in dealing with my burnout. This is a bit out of scope of this update, but I realized my burnout was probably an autistic burnout. (Something I didn't even know existed until a few weeks ago!) Being here...
