Web tech stack

This website (and almost all other web projects I have) runs on a managed server hosted by Hostsharing eG in Germany, a hosting co-op. I like co-ops, and hosting works really well.

I use TelemetryDeck for very light statistics and access tracking. Another indie project I really like and want to support.

Reluctantly, I organize our local mobile meetup via Meetup.
