Introducing The Column, Glide’s Redesigned Blog

We have a lot to say about software - how it’s made, who it serves, and who should be able to make it. “No code development” is a deceptively simple term, but to us, it means constantly thinking about what new tools we can use to help more people make more effective, powerful, and beautiful software more easily. We want to empower people to build the solutions to their own business problems.

Our newly redesigned blog, The Column (a play on both news columns and the data columns that power Glide apps), is a place for us to share what we are working on with our community. It’s your source for Glide news, information about the tech used to build and power no code app building, and ideas for using software to create better solutions. 

Why we’re reintroducing the Glide blog

We can create more effectively when we understand how the tools we are using work and why we are doing things a certain way. Our blog explains the how and the why of Glide, no code development, and business app creation so that you can build better apps for your teams and your businesses.

We want our blog to be a valuable resource that transparently explains what’s going on under the hood of our platform and helps our community use it more effectively. With the new blog design, we hope you can find the inspiration you’re looking for more easily.

Our new blog will host a variety of topics that will help you build better apps with no code. Look for big ideas like our founder’s Nocode keynote speech, helpful tutorials on topics like creating custom OpenAI apps, business guides about topics like managing field operations, and important technical details of the features we introduce to the Glide platform like single sign-on and AI-powered columns.

The content

We’ve created six topic categories to make it easier for people to find the articles and guides they’re looking for. Learn about everything from artificial intelligence to washing machine repair apps. Take a look at the content that lives on our blog.

The design

Beautiful, effective design has been baked into Glide’s philosophy from the beginning. Our blog needed to reflect that focus. We’ve refreshed our look with the help of Glide’s Digital Designer, Tom Parkes, the expertise of front-end developer Edgar John, and the support of talented Lea Konaševská, who created new gradients and 3D illustrations.
