Programming is HARD - at least that’s the impression most non-programmers have. In reality, it’s not much harder than using a spreadsheet, at least with the right tools.

Programming on DataFire is a great way to start learning. DataFire allows you to create Dataflow - scripts that talk to services you care about, like Gmail, Salesforce, and Slack. Dataflow range from stupid simple (like emailing yourself the news) to incrediblty complex (like generating reports from databases). Wherever you are on the learning curve, you can find a challenge. Even better, you’re able to code things that have an impact on your day-to-day life.

We’ll make a series of posts here that will slowly introduce all the concepts involved in creating Dataflows, with a new programming challenge in each lesson. Stay Tuned!
