In my personal life, I’ve always been the self-hosting kind of person. I think most of my friends are hugely annoyed by having to deal with my refusal to join them on platforms like Slack because I deeply value being in control of my own data.
As an experiment, I want to break out of my comfort zone for a pre-defined period of time (as of now, I decided to give it until the end of December) to find out how the experience differs, and how hard it is to move back to self-hosted solutions once I’m ‘trapped’ in a proprietary eco-system.
I’ve got my use-cases pretty well-covered, but I enjoy broadening my horizon - so I’d be interested in what services the community is using, be it chat applications (Slack, Discord, ..), project management tools / time management stuff (Trello, Taiga, ..), feed readers / read-me-later-organizers (Pocket, ..), filesharing / synchronization (I doubt I can get myself to use Dropbox though.), VCS, .. and so on. Whatever comes to mind, I’d like to know about it.
