Bridging the gap in experience between IT Ops and Dev
I quickly began growing my software development skills across other projects, adding UI components like pop-up windows with colors, images and form inputs. In the process, I learned a lot about cloud-based architecture by experimenting with API calls to other services, which helped to add additional functionality to my Quickbase applications.
I started working with iPAAS solutions (Zapier, Workato, etc.), which took the heavy lifting of setting up the various server components required for API communication off my plate. This allowed me to focus on API methods, translation techniques and logic. Along the way, my coding skills continued to improve.
These days I’m conformable building solutions on cloud platforms like AWS and have built mobile apps that can push or pull data from Quickbase, something I never would have imagined before I started using the platform.
