Ymir Report #49 — Ymir PHP SDK

Published about 1 year ago • 1 min read

Heya friend!

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


INTRO

This is the final report from Tokyo! Although, I'm thinking of coming back this October. The partnership that I mentioned last report dominated my time during this cycle.

Unfortunately, I can't share much yet. But since the goal is to integrate Ymir to another platform, I've done work decoupling code from the Ymir CLI so that we can use it in other projects. The result is the first Ymir SDK!

Still doing meetings to get some more clients/partnerships. And no new Carl-as-a-Service customer, which is a bummer. I've held off trying to find consulting work for now and to pay myself a bit from the money I've made so far.


PRODUCT

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

As I said, I've been working a lot on things partnership related. There's only the Ymir PHP SDK that's public. But most of the upfront work around the partnership is almost over, so I'll be going back to working on Ymir itself.

I've been working on tagging for so long. I haven't really thought about what I want to tackle next. I'm going to try to do smaller feature/requests instead of tackling a larger feature of that scale right away.


MARKETING

I'm really struggling with the marketing side right now. It's really hard to find the energy. I'm putting a lot into this partnership.

I've had a few more meetings and have some more planned. But I have to write some documentation on tagging. So I'm trying to do that.


BUSINESS

You can always view Ymir's up-to-date business metrics at ymirapp.com/open. They're updated every 10 minutes.

April is looking pretty good right now. A good amount of trials. I should be able to gain at least one subscriber this month. Still really slow pace sadly.

I'm still not sure how fast the partnership can come online. But I did the math, and that's really what will bring me some financial stability in the near future. That's why I'm giving it my all.

But my only income is the $999 from Carl-as-a-Service. So that's hard right now. I'll probably pay myself from some of the money Ymir made so far this month. But I can only do this for a few months reasonably.

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...
