The Wisdom of No Escape

This exactly. People are used to the mental model and flexibility of spreadsheets, so the world is shoehorned into a spreadsheet.

Turns out, everything can be done in tables. There are tradeoffs, but they trade consistently in favor of table data models in the context of most tasks.

Spreadsheets are essentially a directed acyclic graph under the hood. The advantage is that they are very flexible at the outset, the disadvantage is that they are brittle if you ever have to make changes.

I’m down for the challenge :slight_smile: Coda is Turing complete, so it is as expressive as any possible programming language. It’s also much more elegant and understandable.
