#456 Building GPT Actions with FastAPI and Pydantic

Do you know what custom GPTs are? They're configurable and shareable chat experiences with a name, logo, custom instructions, conversation starters, access to OpenAI tools, and custom API actions.

I Built A Python SaaS with AI

We all know that tools like ChatGPT have really empowered developers to tackle bigger problems. Are you using TailwindCSS and need a login page? Try asking Chat "What is the HTML for a login page with the login username, password, and button in its own section in the center of the page?" It will literally give you a first pass version of it. But how far can you push this? Fred Tubiermont may have taken it farther than most. He built a functioning SaaS product with paying customers by only using ChatGPT and Python. It's fascinating to hear his story.
