Just became a backer of @funkwhale . During these time, I think it is important for us to support each other. Funkwhale, by bridging our musics (and soon, podcasts!), allow to open to other a small window on our emotions and inner selves. Be it a comforting song, a raging tune or a sad music, we build contact with music. It may not seems much, but I believe it matters nonetheless.

If everything is fine with this RC, you can expect the final 0.21 release by the end of the week 🎉

Hi there!

I'm a french developper, on a daily basis, I work on @funkwhale, a federated audio platform based on #ActivityPub, #Python and #Django.

I'm in the process of splitting my unique account (@eliotberriot) in two distinct ones. One for my personal life, @agate, and this one, for everything that's tech-related.

I thought Mastodon.Technology would be a good pick for that, so thank you for welcoming me!

I'm looking forward to talk with you :)
