New OSS Tool Announcement 🎉
One line GPT application portability with the Genoss model gateway. Check out the article we released about Genoss in collaboration with LangChain 🙌
TL;DR: GenossGPT offers a universal interface for interacting with GPT models, simplifying the task of integrating and switching between models in your GenAI-powered application. It gives businesses control over their model usage, while leveraging LangSmith to provide enhanced observability and analytics in production. 👀

Learnings from the week
Stan - Sensei: We tried to be compatible with many different types of LLM from the start. This complicated our backend and resulted in Quivr having a bad UX 😒 We’ve created a new project called Genoss that takes the complexity away 😜Now we have a simple application that has streaming and is awesome to use.
Zineb - Chief Dev: X (Twitter) got people talking about super apps. At Quivr, we have also been exploring creating a simple yet powerful app, a smart virtual assistant in one sleek interface 🦢 Raises some interesting questions: How realistic is it? And how well is this new trend going to be accepted by users? 🤷
Mamadou - Frontend Wizard: UX truly matters 👌🏼 A great project with poor UX will struggle to achieve the desired reach. Developing a product that evolves constantly is challenging. The architecture should be modular, not only to accommodate new features but also to facilitate the removal of bad ones 😇
Matt - Backend Dude: A project with no marketing remains a side project and can never reach any critical mass of users to self-sustain 🤩 As a dev, I have always avoided that side of open-source but learning to embrace it has opened up many more, doors 🚪
Chloe - Product Maestro: A project is never set in stone with just one version. It's all about staying cutting-edge, sparking debates, embracing feedback, and constantly refining. 🙌 We're on a non-stop journey, not resting on laurels, constantly challenging our own ideas. Together, we'll go the extra mile and unlock extraordinary possibilities 🔥
