๐Ÿ”ฅ 50 users in 2 weeks even before launch ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I have started working on SimpleOps 5 weeks back and was done with the beta version last week. I'm yet to do a product launch and as its a complicated product, im running it in beta.

So how did this happen? How do you get your initial users? Its actually something everyone knows but only few actually do. Talk about your product even if its not 100% ready, tell what you doing differently. This also acts as a feedback loop and validation for the things that you are building.

All this while i have been tweeting about the new features, design and everything that i have been doing for Simple Ops. A lot of people liked this and signed for Simple Ops. This reconfirms my assumption. Performance is pain point to a lot for a lot of makers and I'm going to fix that pain by simplifying #DevOps

These are the features that i talked about when i was working on them and this helped a lot.
