    Do you plan to allow self-hosted instances at any point?

    Well... that's not a library. Was not ready for that.

    I get that this is a persuasive article, but I think you're being a bit heavy handed in emphasizing that people don't need traditional education (in the form of a degree). I see quite a few jobs today that have a 4-6 year degree as a requirement. Obviously not all, not even most require this - but if you want the largest pool of opportunity to apply to... a degree can help. I don't think it's worth getting just for that reason, though. This is coming from someone who freelanced years before school and almost dropped out a few times. Now that I've been out of school for a while, the degree has been worth it. Even in traditional education you are forced into networking and exposure to other people in your field (in person usually) which can help launch your career even further. Thanks for posting your thoughts though! Great insight for people looking to get a solid start :)

    I don't think they're very similar. VVV is a VM. This is just a front-end build system that uses gulp plugins to interact with (an already setup) PHP Environment. I think you'll also need a running DB setup as well since the docs say: "If you are running a fresh installation, you will have to setup the general informations for the WordPress wizard (site name, description, database etc…)."

    It's not at feature parity with the Mac OS version yet. It's not really worth anything on Windows until then. (I'm also waiting for this parity to really try it out)

    Dell P2415q is great and totally reasonable. I run it scaled 2560x1440. Near retina.
