Your point is well accepted.
To be precise there are 2 kind of beginners, beginners in using Odoo and
beginners in providing SaaS solutions.
I started as a beginner in both disciplines. My goal is to provide out
of box verticals for small local vendors, businesses and trades to be
used in self service, but relying as much as ever possible on Odoo
standard and OCA modules. At the moment, our offerings are pilot
offerings with personal support and managed largely on a manual base.
But I'm closely observing offers and efforts such as provided by you,
but also goclouder and Yelizariev's SaaS modules. Meanwhile I have
learned a lot by doing it myself in order to understand better what we
will need as soon as we want to leave the pilot stage.
