Hello, World!

We're excited to announce the launch of our private beta for Fastgen.

Fastgen is a low-code API and workflow builder with an integrated Postgres DB. Our drag-and-drop platform allows you to rapidly develop custom APIs and workflows with ease. Our team has been hard at work to create the tool we wish we had in our previous company, a platform that simplifies the API and workflow development process. With our low-code builder, you can create custom APIs and workflows in minutes, even if you have little to no coding experience.

Our integrated Postgres DB makes it even easier to create, read, update, and delete data in your applications. You can now easily build and manage your database alongside your APIs and workflows, all within our platform. We believe that our low-code platform will transform the way developers and businesses approach API and workflow development. Our goal is to provide a solution that streamlines development processes and empowers individuals and teams to build robust applications quickly.

We hope you'll enjoy using our platform as much as we enjoy creating it. Stay tuned for more updates and all the exciting features coming soon.
