Heya friend!

Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that Iā€™m building.


INTRO

Still not feeling especially great. It varies from day to day. I've been very productive overall, but a good amount of it has been consulting work and not Ymir work.

In fact, marketing week was largely a write off. That said, I managed to finish the dashboard design refresh! So there is some movement. It's just not as much as I'd like. (I think this is just going to be a regular feeling from now on šŸ„²)


PRODUCT

You can always view the history of Ymir's product development at https://ymirapp.com/changelog.

So as the report title suggests, I finished the design refresh of the dashboard. I'm very happy with the result. I discussed it in a small Twitter thread:

The goal here was to create some cohesion with the design of the dashboard. I'm using Shuffle for the broad strokes and to make sure the different screens work together. The finer detail (e.g. deployment feed) comes mostly from Tailwind UI or just some bespoke Tailwind CSS styling I did myself.

Behind the scenes, I also cleaned up a lot of the complexity with the dashboard code. This is important because the next step is to add functionality to the dashboard. Like Vapor, you should be able to do almost everything you can do with the CLI with the dashboard.


MARKETING

Marketing week ended up being "Support and consulting week". So not a lot of stuff got done sadly. I tweeted a bit. This tweet by Rarst (Andrey Savchenko) was especially funny:

Besides that, I applied to two conferences with serverless talk. I also managed to produce one YouTube video. It wasn't for the video course, but just to help with a support request. It shows how to setup WordPress multisite with Ymir.

I'm hoping I can be a bit more productive next cycle and at least do another video course video.


BUSINESS

August is looking pretty good so far! I have a lot of active trials right now. That's great because my trial conversion rate is really good so I'm hopeful I might get through this plateau finally. šŸ¤ž

Heya friend! Carl here. You signed up to receive updates about Ymir, the WordPress serverless DevOps platform that Iā€™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 Iā€™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 Iā€™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...
