@Christo - Definitely go through the Bubble intro courses. I’d also suggest searching the Bubble courses available on uDemy to get yourself up to speed (they’re about $10 for a wealth of information):
@iamsalar has a good one that I’ve used in my beginning Bubble days.
@vega.andrew has one that many people seem to like:
@brentsum has some interesting ones (monthly fee as compared to flat fee):
If you have cash to burn or specific needs relating to building your app, some of the “coaches” on the forum are available (I see you’ve already been pitched above ). Many of them are quite good, and worth the money if time is valuable to you…here’s a list of coaches that many on the forum have used:
@iamsalar, @natedogg, @romanmg, @gf_wolfer,
All that said, the forum is a great, great way to learn if you have time and have the patience to type things into the search bar…all basic and advanced topics are covered here…and completely free to boot. If you need more structure, just take a course as mentioned earlier. To explain the “Things” and data-types a bit…just think of everything like a giant spreadsheet (for example: YourBubbleApp.xls).
- Think of a “Thing” as a worksheet inside of a spreadsheet.
- A “data type” is like a column title inside that same spreadsheet
Excel/Google Sheet Example: If you had all your business tax info inside a Taxes2016.xls and you wanted to enter in a new computer that you bought as an expense…you might open up Taxes2016.xls in Microsoft Excel…click on the “expenses” tab inside of Taxes2016.xls…and begin entering the details under 4 columns: item name (i.e. computer), price (i.e. $1,500), date purchased (i.e. 12/1/2016), and category (i.e. Technology).
Translated into Bubble: If the above example was entered into Bubble - you would have an app called “Taxes 2016” (instead of Taxes2016.xls)…and inside of Bubble you would have a Thing called “expenses”…and inside of that Thing called “expenses” you would have 4 data-types: “item name” (type = text), “price” (type=number), “date purchased” (type=date) and “category” (type=text).
