If you’re new to coding getting started can be really hard.
- What does it all mean?
- How do I learn this?
- What are the best resources for a beginner?
This site is focused on a very small subset of the coding world - writing scripts for Airtable - and is designed to be an introductory resource for Airtable non-coders to get into Airtable scripting.
If you haven’t come across Airtable before,check it out.
Airtable is a no-code app, a cross between a spreadsheet and a relational database and allows non-technical users to develop “bases” (self-contained database apps) for their home, hobby and professional lives.
Airtable has recently (Spring 2020) introduced a scripting capability, which allows developers to enhance the functionality of bases and hugely increases (IMO) the set of use cases for Airtable bases.
The downside of Airtable scripts is that it moves Airtable away from its no-code roots, or, at least shifts the balance between code and no-code.
But…scripts are not that hard to get into with a bit of perseverance. And so to the point of this site: It is targeted at the non-coder who wants to get into Airtable scripting, with resources, articles and examples to help them on this journey. Get started here.
