AmiWorks Turns 9, Still in RC3

leave a comment

Today we completed 9 years of our operations.

This was the year of consolidations, where we also shed extra weight that we had gained. We continued with our focus on ‘Awesome Websites‘ program and finally brought it to the centre of WPoets website. In terms of processes, we have improved a lot, but the more we do, the more we realise that there are so many more things to be done.

Documentation, the one task from last year is still pending, though we are now in much better shape than we were, still, a lot is desired. Another thing that is not moving for us is our outbound sales process, this is something we need to now actively work on.

Our work on Awesome Studio platform has paid us rich dividends and we have doubled down on it. In the actual plugin, we did a few minor releases, but we build and released a series of awesome apps, that are being used by most of our customers actively, even though we had built them with WPoets team in mind.  We are in process of improving Awesome Studio platform, and we released the much-improved ‘Awesome Enterprise’ version for our studio platform. It is optimized for use within our projects. In between, we had multiple mini-experiments that did not result in anything.

We had hoped that this year we will have our first release, but we are still in RC 3, simply because we have still not managed to solve some of the teething troubles that keep getting exposed whenever we try to stretch things for our selves.  Some of the major areas where we keep hitting the bottlenecks are sales and technology, they need to be solved before we can confidently say we have arrived.

I would like to take this opportunity to remember and thank all our well-wishers and team members who have continued to support us.

Finally, the best way to describe our current status is in terms of AOE-ROR, we are in Iron Age, but as you may know every research in Iron Age is a costly affair and they take time. We are waiting for our iron age researches to finish and get a few people who can wield those powers before we start our conquest. We will get there soon.

Meanwhile, we continue with our experiments and prepare for our conquest…
