How to build a web app in 5min

20 Apr

When my friend asked me for San Francisco restaurant recommendations this past weekend, I felt like a dusty old relic digging up my vintage #GoogleDoc. Surely, there must be a better way!

So, after getting my fill of no-code/low-code ML at the #GoogleDataCloudLive event, I decided to take on the ultimate challenge: building my own app. I mean, it’s not like I had anything else to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon, right? It was time to drag myself into the 21st century and digitally transform my good ol’ doc!

I put on my #AppDev hat back on and dove headfirst into the #GoogleDevelopers and #GoogleWorkspace portfolio. After five minutes of tinkering with #AppSheet, I had a beautiful new app that could rival Yelp. I think I’ll call it Jelp 😅 (J for Justyna).

It literally took 5min to turn #GoogleSheet into a web app without a single line of code. Of course, being the perfectionist that I am, I couldn’t stop there. Five hours of ✅ UI optimization, ✅ security choices, ✅ user testing, and ✅ edge use cases later, my app was finally ready. And let me tell you, it was worth every minute of self-imposed feature-request-misery.

But the best part? Now I have a digital record of all my favorite restaurants, complete with my notes. I mean, who needs Yelp when you’ve got Jelp, right? So, if you need a recommendation for a great San Francisco eatery, hit me up.
