I've been looking for a project recently to teach me some more about various technologies, specifically public cloud stuff like AWS and container tech like Docker. I have been looking to get into this stuff for a little while and even previously hosted on of my blogs on a container OS, but that was shortlived due to too many headaches with Wordpress containers. For the last few months I had also been looking for a way to replace Spotify - which I had left behind due to privacy concerns, costs, and library limitations (I listen to some... weird stuff). So when I heard about Funkwhale I decided this would be a good opportunity to give the whole Docker/Cloud thing a go.
It seems like you can't use anything these days without spending a good amount of time trying to keep up with changes to the product you're using. My partner frequently complains about apps on her phone being updated, only to find that entire sections of the UI have changed with seemingly no warning. It is a frustration, to be sure, and following mailing lists, forums, and Slack (grr) groups to keep up with everything is an exhausting experience, but it is also something that is becoming more and more necessary as we enter the age of the rolling release. One such change I've become aware of having set up my first WordPress site in a few years is the switch to Gutenberg in the upcoming WordPress 5. Never one to be left behind on such advances, I installed the plugin and started playing around with the "future of WordPress".
