So easy to use. Thanks to @nbashaw for sharing through this GA video: http://generalassembly.wistia.co...

Thanks @GeoffreyWeg! It's great to see people coming in from GA's courses and finding BitBalloon easy to use. Yesterday I had a 6th grader contact me through the in-app chat, while he was working on his "corporate website". There's no reason simple shouldn't be powerful and my goal with BitBalloon is that it should hold up all the way from people getting their first websites online to advanced developers building one page web apps and integrating BitBalloon with their build tools.

This looks super awesome. As a developer, I'd be worried about the database magic (eg, if I add/subtract a field?) How far do you see Bitballoon going toward the production side of things? Love the drag-and-drop your site folder concept, and the one-liner deploys.

@staringispolite we go all the way when it comes to the production side of things. We have several candidates for congress running their campaign sites on BitBalloon and companies like http://dojo4.com/ using it both for their own site and for client work. The forms feature is mostly meant to handle relatively "dumb" forms where the important thing is to store the submission and either export them or plug them into something else (mailing list, etc). We never remove fields from data already stored (so it's safe enough to add/substract fields). When exporting to CSV we'll only give you the fields from the latest deploy of the form, but you can always get to all the data through the API.

Ahhh yeah that makes a lot of sense for that use case. Simple! Shockingly, more simple than Github pages I think.
