Appsmith January Newsletter

Hello Appsmiths, 👋

We are starting the year with a one-awaited launch and a great story.

In response to the increasing demand for AI integration in internal tools, we are launching Appsmith AI, so mark your calendars for Thursday, 15 February. In this event, we'll talk about the reality versus hype of AI and explore how organizations can maximize the success of their AI initiatives. Joining our co-founders Abhishek Nayak and Arpit Mohan will be our special guest, Shekhar Kirani, Partner at Accel. We will also reveal the key findings from our recent survey on AI integration and introduce you to the powerful tools that Appsmith has developed to overcome the barriers in AI development.

This month, we also introduced an inspiring success story of F22 Labs, a product design and development studio that saved an impressive $1,200 monthly using Appsmith's custom extensions. Burdened by exorbitant project management software costs, they strategically switched to Plane and Appsmith to develop custom analytics dashboards.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates coming! 🫰
