"Not long ago, I too was a Quick Base builder working to get ahead by solving big business problems.

But for years, I struggled with leveraging APIs in my Quick Base apps.

The documentation just didn't click for me, and I had no one else to learn from.

Finally, I decided I couldn't continue building apps without knowing how to use APIs.

It took a lot of hard work, piecing together different sources of information.

But, I was able to figure it out and completely up-level my Quick Base game!

Once I applied the secrets to building API buttons, work that once took minutes or hours to complete now only takes seconds. 

My only wish is that I would have learned them sooner.

Now I help others learn the same secrets in a fraction of the time!"

"Your website & instructional videos have been instrumental in my journey through Quick Base app development. The first video I watched was about customizing rich text fields, I think it's called something like "wow you can do that with a rich text field?". I was hooked after that. Quick Base Junkie is a lifesaver - Thank you so much for the work you do!"

A great resource for people just getting started with QB and even those who need a quick refresher. I'll be sure to recommend your channel to anyone I know that works with QB and is looking for well crafted tutorials :D"
