Black Lives Matter

We’re a tech company, but everything we do is in the context of the larger world. And right now, shadows from the larger world overwhelm our daily work with bits and bytes.

Thomas Jefferson wrote 244 years ago that our rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness must never be compromised, but the events of the past few days show that the United States is still far from that ideal. The murder of innocent African Americans must stop, and silence on this issue is intolerable. As Edmund Burke wrote, the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Robust Quick Base Applications

Just like a person, Quick Base (and all database) applications age over time. Developers add fields, reports and relationships that become obsolete, but don't clean up after themselves. Eventually, there are all kinds of database elements that no one remembers and just confuse the user. The original developers leave the organization and their successors look at the app (originally so well-conceived!) and say "who designed this mess?"

There's no fountain of youth, but there are some things you can do to avoid database sprawl.

1. Isolate the chaos
