I’ve been exploring Glide for a while now and I’m amazed with the possibilities.
This is so inspiring that got me thinking that people should be teaching it at schools.
I’m just a marketeer and definitely not a teacher, but I wonder the difference it could make in the professional future of a 14 years old teenager that is struggling to connect what they learn in school with the real life skills demanded by the market.
This is a great way to take a spreadsheet, something that pretty much every Gen Z kid is born knowing how it works, and abstract it to the concept of databases and programming languages. It bridges the gap between people and technology, empowering them to actually come up with solutions without knowing much about design and software development. It’s a perfect gateway to get hooked dive deep on a promising career path.
It would be nice to have some sort of educational program, where Glide partners up with schools and provide special access to students. It could work kinda like Glide for Organizations, but with educational purposes and different prices. I can clearly see it becoming something huge and Glide beating the shit out of Adobe and Microsoft in this market.
What you guys think about it?
Does anyone have already tried to teach kids how to build apps with Glide?
