Hey everyone! 👋
I'm Pramod, one of the Co-founders of Threado. Before we start, our team and I would like to thank you for all the love shown for Community OS last week 🤗. We ended at #1 Product of the Day on Product Hunt on one of the busiest days of the week. The response and feedback we received was unreal!

Back to this week’s newsletter with a case study on Appsmith’s community approach and updates from the world of community 🙂👇
🤝 Appsmith - the story about how a super-involved community is helping shape a product developers love
"I had about 200-300 guests attending my wedding. Our goal was let's launch the product at my wedding so that we get at least a few hundred downloads." - Abhishek Nayak
Appsmith is the story of persistence. Learnings from multiple failures and passion for shipping products - this startup rollercoaster is as exciting as it can get.
Appsmith was founded in mid-2019 and its open source software has been downloaded over 5 million times with users at over 1,000 enterprises in 100-plus countries. Appsmith is the open-source framework that lets your team build custom internal applications like dashboards, admin panels, CRUD apps faster, and together.
For a use case like that of Appsmith, it was vital to be engaged with the developers (users of the product) who were using their open-source platform to build internal tools - to get their feedback and learn from them on how they could improvise their product.
