Telegram is my favorite messenger for chatting. There are many reasons for this. But Telegram is also very suitable to use it as a notification service for your own projects.

In this post I want to show with which services and tools it is possible to run a completely free website. An own website not only offers the possibility to create your own professional web presence, it can also make you independent from silos like Facebook, Twitter or Medium.

Migrate a PostgreSQL Container to a New Major Version

Published on in πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Dev
