Not a personal win, but the Forem team is starting to close the loop on some huge things.

  • Core Forem open source hosting instructions are moving into the final stage of testing before a wider release (long time coming)
  • The Forem iOS app literally just went live. We'll have a proper announcement early next week, but consider this an early heads up for those reading this. πŸ˜„
    • The Forem app is like a browser for the whole ecosystem, so once you start your own Forem anyone who wants to browse DEV on their device can also swipe to your Forem.

Btw for anyone curious, Android will follow in the near future.

We prioritized iOS because Android has a better mobile web experience. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. iOS technology and user expectations really center around native apps.

And again, much more info coming next week. Can't wait to share all about our approach and what this means for the future.
