It’s time for a quick recap of what’s going on at Baserow. So, let’s jump right in!
@Govi, @levinside, @William, @deet, @joseph_appsmith, @iiimcintosh, we want you to know how much we appreciate your s. It’s always encouraging for the team and other members to see an interest in what we share, and when we help each other out. Keep them coming!
@frederikdc created a new set of videos showcasing the entire process of building a responsive web application for reporting a nest of Asian hornets in an area. It’s built using Appsmith as the frontend and Baserow as the backend.
Fellow Baserowers, we’re amazed by all of your contributions. Thank you so much for your support.
We have plans to release Baserow 1.21 very soon. Although we can’t disclose all the details at this time, we can announce that this version will include two HUGE features:
Which one are you waiting for the most?
If you’re a fan of Baserow and want to go beyond just using the product, we invite you to join our Ambassador program! As an ambassador, you’ll not only get exclusive behind-the-scenes access to our development process, but also enjoy some special perks. These perks include the opportunity to connect with other Baserow enthusiasts, attend invite-only events where you can learn more about our vision and future plans, and much more.
As you probably saw, we have a sleek new logo! The logo is part of a much larger product redesign that we’ll be shipping soon. Check out this preview of a section from the new Baserow homepage. It’s a big moment for us because the original Baserow design was created by Bram a long time ago.
Let us know what you think of it in the comments!
Last week, the Baserow team was in Paris, attending NoCode Summit 2023.
During the two-day event, we had the amazing opportunity to discuss, share, and connect with 2,500 no-coders. What’s even more exciting is that we had two speaking slots where we talked about the power of open-source and no-code, and demonstrated how to build scalable apps without code. Recordings of the event will be available later. In the meantime, here are two interesting quotes from our talks:
Baserow plans for 2024:
"We are launching the beta for our application builder at the end of November. It’s going to be open-source and free. We’re launching the open-source version first so that everybody can adopt it. If you’re on our newsletter or you want to follow us, check that out. We’ll want you to start giving us feedback. We position ourselves to be a bit more complicated than Bubble but less complicated than Glide. We can build internal tools and external applications. In the beginning, it’s going to be just Baserow as the data source, but moving forward, you will be able to connect to all sorts of data sources, whether it’s Airtable, Google Sheets, or an existing database. You’ll be able to build applications regardless of the database, and these applications will scale. It’s not just for internal use, but you can actually build entire websites with it and create portals to restrict access.”
—Olivier Maes, co-founder and CRO at Baserow.
Short remark: After the NoCode Summit, we had a call to discuss the release of the beta version of the app builder. It was decided to postpone the release a bit in order to add some critical features.
What we see for AI in Baserow:
"What we see for AI in Baserow is that we want to support no-code developers in actually building applications. That could be done by having documentation that you can refer to and a model that you can ask questions to, like "How do I create a new field in Baserow? " or “What should this database look like? " the model can then provide you with answers directly in the tool. Additionally, we also want to use AI to enhance the data that you already have in baserow. For example, you can think about an AI field where you can write a prompt and ask the AI questions. You would have variables to choose from based on the data you’re editing, and the AI would automatically provide the answers.”
—Bram Wiepjes, co-founder and CEO at Baserow.
