Imagine you and another chef are preparing a steak dinner for 50 guests. You enter the kitchen with nothing but a butter knife. But your partner’s wielding an extra-sharp, top-of-the-line piece of cutlery. They carve up the meat with quick, precise strokes—while you’re stuck sawing away.
Some jobs need sharper tools. Just like a great chef’s knife, a database can save you time and trouble when it comes to slicing and dicing (in this case, data). The only problem is they’re typically difficult to use and often require SQL scripting skills. That’s where Airtable steps in and improves things.
Want the highlights? The Zapier and Airtable teams hosted a webinar to chat about some of the cool use cases mentioned in this post. Here’s the recording, in case you missed the live webinar.
