I love working on the full stack of technologies involved with developing an application. It's satisfying to design and implement a feature on the backend and request the data from the frontend application to render out something awesome. It's very rewarding but it can be a long process to set everything up. It's often a boilerplate experience and I often find myself doing a lot more devops than development. This got me looking for alternative ways to setup servers and systems that could aleviate this need to iterate on systems rather than programs.
