It's no secret I love tools that help nonprogrammers become creators. Emergency physicians are among the most entrepreneurial of all physicians, and many dream of building their own apps or websites. The tools for nonprogrammers keep improving, and my new favorite is www.bubble.is.
Integrated databases are important because websites come in two general forms: static and dynamic. Static websites show the same content to everybody; dynamic ones show different content to different users in different situations. (Facebook shows you your posts and shows other people their posts.) Most valuable websites are built on top of a database structure that allows users to add, query, and edit data. Many dynamic websites use PHP and MySQL to communicate with and manage dynamic data, but implementing these is beyond the scope of most EPs.
Bubble allows you to build a dynamic website that performs relatively complicated tasks. Some users are already building solutions that mimic Airbnb and Twitter, and now, you can, too.
