@emilyjsnowdon Hi! Yes, I have an idea I've been working on the side and haven't bit the bullet yet on as I've been gathering the content for it. I'm excited that this festival is happening to push over the line and get started on making it.

@emilyjsnowdon Hi everyone. Excited to be doing this for the first time. Can someone share how-to with coda and if there are any specific guidelines we need to follow?
COO @ Product Hunt
@ganesh_bhat Hey Ganesh. Absolutely. Here is a link to some additional information about Coda. I'm also looping in @evan_pryce from the Coda team.

Hi folks - Evan from Coda here! Super excited for this festival and to help folks in the community build docs as powerful as apps πŸš€. I'm joined by a few other Coda experts on the team who can answer any questions you might have. We'll also be running a few live stream doc builds so you can see what's possible (if you want some initial inspiration, check out our Gallery where other Makers have launched their docs at https://coda.io/templates). Let's do this!

@evan_pryce Maria Marquis here - also from Coda and standing by to offer assistance! Looking forward to seeing your amazing creations!
@evan_pryce Can you maybe help me with the following challenge? I have several interview transcripts and I would like to analyze those by highlighting certain snippets and give them a tag. So for example the interviewee has said "Building apps takes a long time" and I want to tag this with "effort" and resue this tag later on other text snippets. Functionality is similar to https://atlasti.com. Is something like this possible with Coda?

@oliphant sounds like a really cool use case for Coda! I just sent you a direct message to connect further
@evan_pryce @justin_hales Hi Justin! I love Coda but am brand new to it. I have a #Tools for Teams project I'd like to try, but could use huge help breaking it down into its Coda bits. How/where most appropriate to describe project in more detail? Thanks!

@emilyjsnowdon Hello guys, glad to be a part part of this ! This is my first fest of anything. Can you guy tell me how we can go about doing this ? Should I just sign up on Coda ?
Share
@emilyjsnowdon @el_hadj_chikhaoui Excited to have you join this! Yes all you need to do is head to coda.io to sign up. Take a look through the Gallery (https://coda.io/templates) for inspiration, and use this doc to track your progress and plan your submission (https://coda.io/t/_te6h7JnfEF9). Let me know if you need any help as you get started by emailing help@coda.io, or posting in the discussion!

@emilyjsnowdon thanks for this festival. My name is Arthur and this will be my second CatHaton. NoCode is a great movement and the last few articles from @rrhoover raise a lot of ideas in my head. I mean, if Ryan thinks about it - then we should too.

@emilyjsnowdon @rrhoover @arthur_tkachenko Cathaton, I love it 😎I agree, no code is great, it breaks down barriers for entry into the making scene which means more makers which means more amazing products!

COO @ Product Hunt
@christine_parfitt hi Christine - glad we can help feed your Coda addiction πŸ˜ƒWhat type of docs have you already built?
@emilyjsnowdon 1. a minimalist crm which essentially just has next steps for each client 2. what's in my fridge so I can keep track and link to recipes 3. a more substantial app for a planting festival - 12 teams will plant trees in 12 areas on a 500 acre site. The app is for the support team to manage delivery to each site and for the team leaders to submit reports and log any incidents :))
Share
COO @ Product Hunt
@christine_parfitt Oh wow I love that! The planting festival sounds wonderful. A great initiative to be supporting with an app to manage logistics. (I should have an app for what's in my fridge but it wouldn't tell a great story right now πŸ™ˆ). Excited to see what you build for the Festival. πŸ› 
Reinventing documents @coda.io
@christine_parfitt how is your minimalist CRM going? Excited to see what you build!
@emilyjsnowdon This is cool . Hey Can I change the category to submit app at a later stage. And can submit more than one app.

@kiran_n_raja @kiran_n_raja Hey there! You can only submit one app, drop us a message in support about which category you want it to be in! :)

Maker
Hi everyone! RN by day, founder and aspiring maker every other time. Very first time doing this. Looked over coda and seems a little complicated for someone like me with zero experience. Can I build with another no-code tool?
COO @ Product Hunt
@quin_caylor hi Quin! Excited to have you join the festival. Yes you can build with any no-code tool. In fact - we just asked the community for a list of their favorites and they didn't disappoint - check out some suggestions here.

@quin_caylor Also happy to help you get started with Coda so you can submit for the grand prize! Will reach out directly.

Hey @emilyjsnowdon and everybody else :) I'm excited for this. I've signed up can I add @sidhantpanda as a team member, cant find a way to do this, TIA :)
COO @ Product Hunt
@sidhantpanda @findabhilash hi Abhilash and Sidhant welcome to the festival! When registering you can add 2 makers, or if you've both registered separately - no problem, you'll be able to list both of you as Makers when you come to submit.
Maker of threedo.app
@emilyjsnowdon Hi everyone! TBH never used Coda before, and it seems pretty confusing-slash-overwhelming right now. But I have an old idea in mind, a habit building technique I once implemented in Google Sheets and then tried to make a native mobile app for it (failed because it was my first app ever and I wasn't skilled enough at the moment, lol). I think this one will be perfect for the compo. Cheers everyone! πŸ™Œ
@emilyjsnowdon @paul_danyliuk Sounds like a great use case Paul! I'm happy to help you hit the ground running with Coda - I'll send you a dm to set up some time if you're interested! A few inspirations in our Gallery here as well: https://coda.io/templates
COO @ Product Hunt
@paul_danyliuk Hey Paul - sounds like the perfect time to turn that sheet into an app! @evan_pryce will be able to help get you started with Coda to kick things off.
Maker of threedo.app
@emilyjsnowdon @evan_pryce have been playing around with Coda for a while and I like how it turns out! Very interesting and powerful platform. Some things require tinkering and finding workarounds (like referencing previous rows for cascaded calculations, e.g. yearly interest, or for making input forms), but overall I'm impressed. I guess it's somewhat similar to Airtable? I haven't checked that one out yet, but it's been all over the maker community, and I think their positioning is the same? Airtable is premium though β€” I'm surprised that Coda isn't, and kinda worried that if I use some features that you'll eventually decide to make premium (e.g. integrations), my doc will break. I've checked out the templates, most of which turned out to be Evan's β€” some sick job there! Would've never figured out those things were possible with Coda if not for those samples. Good timing too. I feel like I need a little side project retreat from my main hustle right now. And just a little one like that, doable in a day or two.
