Where do I Start?



I'm a neophyte database & app developer. I can appreciate the great training articles and videos that Caspio has, however, are there beginners step-by-step instructions somewhere that list the correct steps and proper order in creating the database and the apps & web forms that will access it? Thanks!

Hello enigma,

Please visit: http://howto.caspio.com/ and you see the order on how to create your app, starting with designing your tables then the DataPages, these 2 are the first steps however after you are done with creating all tables then start searching through the How-To tutorials and develop your app based on your need. Each tutorial is described each step in details. You can contact support for help based on your package or post your question here to get it answered. Thank you. :mrgreen:

Hello enigma,

The first step in creating a web-based application is to build a normalized table. To make sure that the tables are well-architected accordingly to the needs of your application, you can click the links below to view the presentations:

Just want to add to the previous comments above, the first thing that you need to do is to build a normalized and well-architectured table.  And for you to know the fields and tables that you need, you need to define the workflow of your application.  As well as the Level of Users of the app. In this manner, it would be easy for you to identify which tables that you will need, and what type of relationship you need to establish.

By the way, they offer free instructor-led training sessions multiple times per week. These online training helps you get up and running quickly. You can sign up in these training session here: http://howto.caspio.com/pre-recorded-live-training/ or watch the pre-recorded training sessions at http://howto.caspio.com/pre-recorded-live-training/  

Those online training really helped me a lot in building my desired application.  I hope that it will help you too.

Hope that helps! :)
