Hello, my name is Stephen Cagle. I am a laid off (Covid) software engineer in downtown Oakland. I enjoy bicycling from Oakland to Berkeley (4 to 6 days a week), reading and napping at various parks in the East Bay and playing board games.
Anywho, I was wondering about all these no code solutions I keep hearing about. So far I have made (demo/personal apps) a small glide app for:
- A restaurant (just a menu)
- A restaurant that you can sorta order from
- A workout tracking app
- A Do, Defer, Drop, Delegate, Nah… app (working on it currently)
I am impressed by how much you can accomplish in so little with Glide. I think it really points to the powerful leverage of picking the right metaphor. Excel sheets are a lingua franca among so many businesses! It was interesting to me as I would previously argue that clojurescript + interactive development was the right answer for any level of web app (especially at the prototype/beginning). Glide has convinced me that there is a level of web/app development that is easier to do with nocode solutions than with any coding solution.
Anyway, that is a long winded way of saying I think glide is pretty neat. Glad to be here!
