Don't take our word for it

  • Finally had a chance to play with @Begin.

    Damn, it feels sooo good, this should be a part of AWS. Feels like Heroku of #serverless age.

    Simplification of complex infra pieces behind good-looking UI and framework, I'm sold.

  • It's amazing to see how quickly you can start modifying and building webapps using platforms like @Begin. I can't wait to see how this area of website building will develop.

  • TIL @Begin 🤯

    - CI/CD
    - Multiple Envs
    All under 5 minutes. WOW

  • Ok @begin - despite not being able to type your domain name the first time, every time ("being" anyone?)...

    This is the smoothest, quickest app hosting I've ever seen. Most other providers have lost this vision. This is a seriously good experience.

  • Looking to learn what all the hotness is with Deno but don't want to waste a lot of time?

    I created a free 2:37 video to get you up & running with Deno using @Begin. Really impressed with their platform, definitely a super easy way to deploy Deno apps 🔥

  • I gotta say (again) - Begin is slick AF.

    Ajay Nair
  • Will continue saying this: Brian and the team at @begin live in the dang future.
