Self-service, RapidAPI, cluster and legal delays🤷

Oleg Kulyk @kami4ka

Everybody likes to take some action and receive instant feedback, but it does not always work in that way 🤷‍♂️

So, during the last month, we've focused on the development of the frontend part of our self-service admin panel, because we'd like to spread the channels of our API distribution and have more control over user flow. 🤖

RapidAPI is a great platform for selling the APIs, but there is a lack of user flow control, so it's quite hard to optimize a funnel. I can recommend this platform for everyone, who'd like to validate the API service MVP without implementing a bunch of processing stuff.

Also, as an alternative to RapidAPI, I can suggest taking a look https://saasify.sh/

The deployed K8s cluster works as expected and even better, so we can scale our infrastructure in minutes without any DevOps actions and with only the simple UI action. 🚀

As mentioned before, we're moving our business to EU right now, so the COVID delays annoy us insanely, but in all businesses, you can do other tasks while blocked with a particular one. 🙃

A great announcement becomes closer, but let's wait a bit 🤫

See you soon 😉
