It's certainly exciting. It'll be really interesting to see how the platform iterates, especially in terms of how they scale to handle larger user bases and how the editor evolves for more complex applications.

I think they'll have hurdles to cross related to folks being worried about vendor lock-in.

Still, it's very interesting and I wish them the best. Crossing my fingers for beta access!
