New Year, New Blog, New something?

I am really stoked to show you guys my brand new Blog built with October CMS. For my hosting, I have used Digital Ocean (click the link for $10 free). Digital Ocean is a fantastic hosting company which I just love to use as they give you complete control over your VPS, and they even give you One-click apps to help you get started.

The technology I am using to drive my Blog is Docker, NGINX, PHP 7 and Maria DB. I don't believe I have containerized each of my instances as much as I could have, but it's been great to use Docker in a real world situation.

The tutorials for Docker are really good, but because it's such a vast topic, you don't really know what's going on unless you just bite the bullet and build your next website using it.

I will release a tutorial on how I got my website up and running next week and hopefully it will help others in getting started.

As for the future of this Blog, I would like to start attaching podcasts to each Blog post I create (I may even go back to previous posts and attach a podcast to them). I would also like to let you guys see my Twitch stream within my website as I do like to stream my games (possibly dev work) from time to time.

If you would like to hear more from me, then please feel free to follow me on Twitter, Twitch or you can even subscribe using the form below and entering your email address. I use Mailchimp for emails and I promise you I won't spam.

Sidenote: I know Discuss isn't on my posts currently, but this will be put back in when I have some time available.
