Hi Anna, thanks for the compliment! There are several differences between Coda and Airtable, but the most prominent one is that Coda doc can contain tables of data AND free-form text. This feature is probably the quickest one to spot visually. In my opinion, Airtable excels at visualizing data in rows/columns paradigm. Since Coda does not present you with a grid right off the bat, you’ll start to see you have the ability to build fully-functioning apps with a data layer (the table), model (formulas in the tables and in the canvas), and view (charts and layouts of your data). Looking forward to hearing about your adventures in Coda!
P.S. How did you come across my blog post in the first place?
