As we build out the Alpas core we are also making some real-life apps that help us improve the features already available with Alpas and create new features that assist with rapidly creating delightful web apps.

Over the last week, we have been busy working on a real-life app that we will share out shortly! This venture has been helpful with identifying some enhancements to Alpas that will also be released soon. 🙌

Lastly, we’d like to note that this will be the last weekly newsletter for the time-being as we will move the updates to a bi-weekly cadence.
