Hey everyone! 👋
I'm Pramod, one of the Co-founders of Threado. Building strong relationships in a community is a challenge for many. One way to overcome this is by seeking feedback and implementing them aggressively. Even the smallest of actions can make a significant impact. Just like this 👇
🎯 Postman - every developer's companion worth $5.6Bn!
The journey begins in Basti, a small town in Uttar Pradesh, and reaches San Francisco Bay Area. It is the story of passionate programmers and their determination to do more.
Back when Postman was just a Chrome Web App, the founders focused on listening to the users, working closely with them to shape the product the way they wanted it. This helped them prioritize the needs of the market - a key success factor! Another bit they aced at was building a thriving developer community of 17M+ users!
Here's a powerful, inspiring story of a $5.6Bn community-led rocket ship, aka Postman! Read more in this week's case study!
