Where am I with Drupal 8?

One of the original goals of this website was to help me train on Drupal 8 and I promise I will get there! I'm just involved with a Drupal 7 site build at the moment (which is going very well) and so I'm putting off my Drupal 8 training for a little bit. But I'll get back there! One thing to note about this recent build is I've incorporated two new technologies that I've not used in production before - CSS Grid and CSS Variables. I also started with the Tao theme so I could start with as base a level as possible.

Starting off with Drupal 8 isn't much different than Drupal 7. Same installation process, same configuration, roughly similar interface once you're in. What's different for me at this stage is a change in hosting. I don't consider myself a "DevOp" in that I don't know much about and don't typically handle server configurations for websites. I'm a developer through and through so I focus on the specific web technologies like PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and the like. So, when it came time to spin up a Drupal 8 site from scratch, I ran into a few bumps.
